Kelly, your story gave me more motivation to continue working on the Vision for millions around the globe diagnosed with Epilepsy. I saw your start story during a commercial on StartTV and my heart leapt! While building Epilepsy Compassion International Inc I had become overwhelmed and was losing desire, even though my story was like yours. I would very much enjoy sharing my story of Epilepsy and being the mother of an Epilepsy Patient with you when you are ready. How may I get this important story to you?
I've been watching StartTV over a year, knowing my time to share my Start Story is coming. Thank you for being a part of the spark that keeps the flame of passion for this cause lit for myself and so many others.
