My young friend, Violet, an incredibly smart, funny, kind, curious and healthy little girl, began having seizures recently. Her doctors have not been able to get them under control and her family, good parents who work hard, are having a difficult time.

Violet had the flu and after getting better began having what the doctors called "febrile" seizures".  After the flu and the fever were gone, she continued suffering mild seizures.  Gradually they increased to several a day and an anti-seizure medication was prescribed.  It has not helped and in fact, she had one that lasted 5 minutes - the worst one so far - and was sent to a Portland hospital where they are trying to find the cause and a treatment that works.  At this age brain damage is a possibility if the seizures are not controlled.

Violet lives with her mom, dad, and little brother in a small town and the costs of traveling back and forth, staying in Portland, uncovered medications and tests, and time taken off from work to be with her have hurt them financially.  Anything you can donate to help keep this family afloat and get the care that Violet needs will mean a lot to them all. 

This bright, active, vivacious little girl needs all of the help we can give her.  Her parents are hard-working, dedicated, good people who are struggling.  Her future is at stake.  Will you help?
