Goals can be achieved, dreams founded and life can continue.

  • My mission with starting these pages it to help others understand epilepsy and to learn what seizure alert dogs are and how they make our lives easier.

I own three support groups and some of our members are very talented writers, there are poem, lyrics and others wanted to share their own stories to help others know they are not alone in this. Others understand what you are going through and more than likely are going through the same or similar things you are.

  • What Is Epilepsy
  •  Epilepsy is a neurological disorder — a physical condition — which causes sudden bursts of hyperactivity in the brain. Here is an explanation that will help those who are learning about epilepsy or maybe they or a loved one has recently diagnosed with epilepsy.

  • What Is A Seizure Alert Dog?
  • A seizure alert dog can forewarn their owner that a seizure is coming. My dog Rocky has a 7-19 minute lead time on mine. I can’t stop them but at lest I can get to safety and do not have to have it in front of others, if I am in a public place.
  •  
  • There is also a seizure response dog’s that alert those around their owner once the seizure has started.
  •  
  • VNS: Vagus Nerve Stimulation
  • Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) involves periodic mild electrical stimulation of the vagus nerve in the neck by a surgically implanted device similar to a heart pacemaker.
  • VNS has been found effective in controlling some epilepsies when anti-epileptic drugs have been inadequate, their side effects intolerable, or neurosurgery has not been an option. In some cases, VNS has also been effective in stopping seizures.

  • Craft Fundraising
  • Jewl, Julie and Lynz are making crafts by Knitting, Designing and Sewing Clothes and Plastic Canvas to raise funds for Cancer, Epilepsy, and Seizure alert dogs. Part of the proceeds will be going to charitable organizations, the other its to buy more supplies.
