2019 ITL Walk Overview
My Name is Jeremy Taylor, I'm 11yrs old and was diagnosed with Epilepsey in the summer of 2011. Since my diagnosis, I've had multiple seizures while sleeping and playing. I've also had serveral absence seizures (Brief loss of consciousness). I am currently on 2 anti-seizure meds twice a day. This coming Sept of 2019, I will be 4yrs convulsion free!!!! The doctors have started reducing one of my meds. Hopefully I will be off meds soon. My family and friends will be walking for a cure and to raise awareness. Please help us reach our goal and fight Epilepsy. " We don't know how strong we really are until being strong is the only choice."
