This is Carolina, my wife. Today marks what would have been our four year anniversary. Carolina passed away tragically at the age of 25 as a result of SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy). In Carolina’s honor and in honor of all those living with and lost to epilepsy, on this day, I ask you to take a moment…

Take a moment and do more than simply liking this post…

Take a moment and work to change the way the world sees and understands epilepsy; a spectrum of neurological disorders that affects 65 million people worldwide.

Take a moment and teach someone about epilepsy in hopes that someday, someone’s life will not be cut short as a result of seizures.

Take a moment and teach ONE person today about proper seizure recognition and first aid. Or learn for yourself. You may contribute to saving a life, perhaps your own.

Take a moment of silence for Carolina and the far too many gone too soon at the hands of epilepsy; about 50,000 a year.

Take a moment today to value those who are important to you because you never know if you have tomorrow.
