7th Annual Teresa's Birthday Benefit!
Our event honoree, Teresa Walsh, died from SUDEP (sudden unexplained death in epilepsy) on November 23, 2010, 5 years after being diagnosed with epilepsy. During the 5 years Teresa was living with epilepsy she dealt with dozens of seizures, countless doctors appointments and several different medications, none of which stopped her seizures and barely controlled them.
Teresa was determined to not let her epilepsy define her and she lived her life as she wished, which is not possible for many who suffer from this debilitating condition. She had just graduated from college and was getting ready to start a masters program to become a teacher at the time of her death. Through this annual event we celebrate her life and her birthday and support the groundbreaking research done by CURE to bring an end to seizures for good.
During the time since Teresa's death great strides have been made in the quest for a cure, but there is more work to be done. Your support of this event and of CURE helps to bring us closer to a day when the millions of people currently suffering from epilepsy will be seizure free.
Please join us on Friday, September 15, 2017 (Teresa's 31st birthday!) at Commonwealth Pub & Cafe in Oakland for a fun evening supporting CURE and celebrating Teresa's memory. We'll have a great raffle and live music and look forward to seeing you there.
Suggested donation for the event is $30 and includes 1 drink ticket and 3 raffle tickets.
