The Signor family started the Chase Away Epilepsy Walk in 2019 to pull back the curtain on epilepsy through community awareness. Their son Chase had his first seizure in December 2015 and he wants to let other children know they are not alone with their diagnosis. "Epilepsy does not define me, it strengthens me to educate others," stated Chase, now age 13. This walk brings awareness and supports the programs of JoshProvides Epilepsy Assistance Foundation to directly help children, families and individuals living with seizures.
Founded by the Chapnick family in 2008 after the tragic passing of their son and brother, Joshua David Chapnick, from a fatal fall from an epileptic seizure, JoshProvides Epilepsy Assistance Foundation, Inc. offers HELP & HOPE to children, families, individuals and caregivers who are living with Epilepsy or other seizure disorder. Our mission is to improve the lives of those living with and affected by epilepsy or other seizure disorders. Our programs include: a virtual Epilepsy Support Group held twice a month to keep families connected and combat the social isolation of this disorder; distribution of seizure alert & detection devices; financial assistance for medical diagnosis and treatment of seizures; transportation vouchers for medical appointments; and seizure response training of service dogs.
