As we proceed into 2011, we're trying to decide how to get the most from our efforts. We have some ideas as we move ahead and a very anxious Jamie is waiting to make things happen. She's emerging from her shadow that epilepsy invoked on her. The same very common but often misunderstood condition that zapped that vibrant smile and spontaneous behavior is not losing its battle. Jamie is coming back and I can't help but think it's a combination of helping other children with their battle and her success she started seeing at school thanks to a couple of very special teachers she has. It's wonderful to see that smile return and she's really ready to go to reach out to more kids.
Some of her goals are to make necklaces and sell them to bring in money for her Angels4Epilepsy gift bags. She already is planning on a delivery on Purple Day to bring more attention to the event that marks epilepsy awareness. Even Buddy from The Cake Boss is participating with the Anita Kaufman Foundation by making purple cupcakes on March 12th! Yeah, Buddy! Jamie also enjoys watching his show.
As we move ahead, we're still coming up with ideas to move Angels4Epilepsy forward. We have made a wonderful contact in Indiana who is starting to make things shake for those with epilepsy there. We look forward to hopefully working with Stacey.
That's it for now but stay tuned for more!
