Fundraiser Success and Seizure Update

In honor of November being Epilepsy Awareness Month.
In honor of November being Epilepsy Awareness Month.
Whew - what a whirlwind the past two months have been!! I am happy to report that the fundraiser - both on-the-ground and online - was a HUGE success! We raised over $20,000 because of the generous support from family, friends, our community, and even strangers. We genuinely could not have raised these funds without YOU - thank you:) The money we raised will go into a Special Needs Trust we opened for Julian. We will use the money strictly for all costs associated with CBDs, as reported earlier. These funds will help us continue this important (albeit expensive) treatment for our son. There are two ways to still donate to Julian's cause: either by sending a check to Kara Fox, P.O. Box 1518, Kings Beach, CA 96143, or by purchasing an item from the "Little Man" section on this etsy page: https://www.etsy.com/shop/scraphappydesigns?section_id=14205547

Our local media was very generous in getting the word out about Julian and his situation. Here are some articles that were published:

We are still trying to control and manage Julian's seizures. While CBDs are helping, we encountered some setbacks in the last month, and Julian started having more seizures again. However, we just started Julian on a new batch of tincture yesterday, and he has already started showing improvement. We are constantly learning and growing from this process, so we are confident that Julian can become seizure-free in the future. I will continue to post frequent updates on his progress.
