I am very excited to participate in my first Marathon and I am very grateful that I can be a part of the Epilepsy Foundation fundraising team. As a child neurologist trained in Germany and epilepsy researcher at UCLA I had the opportunity to help children with epilepsy on two continents. I have witnessed numerous families fight against this unpredictable and terrible disease. To see their persistent struggle strengthened me in my professional and private life as well as during my training for the Marathon. I would like to raise epilepsy awareness and support families with epilepsy by running for the Epilepsy Foundation. As an epilepsy researcher I also want to support the Epilepsy Foundation’s continued commitment to research by young physicians and scientists. I am very thankful in advance for any donations.
