Kids Speak Up! is a national conference for youth leaders with epilepsy. It provides 7-16 year olds with a unique opportunity to educate elected officials and staff about the disease. It’s also the first chance for many participants to speak out and meet other youth with epilepsy.
We will be attending training and have the opportunity to go to Capitol Hill to speak with relected officials about epilepsy. It will be a great learning experience for us and them.
Spencer and I are in the process of raising money for the Walk and would love it if you would contribute if you feel led to do so. You can go to this page to make an online contribution. You can also contribute by mail and the address is listed on the page as well.
I'll be sure to post pictures when we return. In the meantime, enjoy this clip from last year's walk. I think you might recognize that little boy at the end saying "We need you!"

Sweet Blessings to you,
