About My Campaign

Friends and Family,

I’d like to invite you to contribute to my fundraising campaign for FACES (Finding A Cure For Epilepsy and Seizures). On March 10th 2018, my mother and I will be running the Rock and Roll Half Marathon in Washington, D.C. to support this organization. There are so many reasons to get involved with this community that’s working together to enable the best medical care, research, and education. But this cause in particular is special to me. My brother, Joey, was diagnosed with epilepsy at age two, and has battled the disorder for his entire life. Joey has shown constant determination and always has a smile on his face no matter the situation. NYU Langone's team of staff has supported our family since the very beginning, and we owe so much to their hard work and dedication. (Special shoutout to Dr. Devinsky!) I wish I could be half as strong as Joey is, and I know that one day we can find a cure for this debilitating neurological disorder.

If you feel motivated to donate any amount, no matter the size, please do. Your gift would mean so much to me, and even more to so many others who depend on the work of NYU Langone's faculty and staff. This one's for you, Joey.  Thank you for your support!!
