I’m not really sure how to put into words what it means to have been awarded a grant for an epilepsy monitor; nor what this important piece of medical equipment could potentially do for my family and my mental health. 

I cannot put into words the panic I feel when I wake each morning and run in to check on Dakota to make sure I've not missed a seizure.  I check she’s breathing properly and has not vomited or is wet.  My fear every morning is kind of indescribable...

Now we have our Daisy monitor, the thought of being able to actually relax and hopefully manage some sleep is beyond words.   I really cannot thank The Daisy Garland enough for your kindness and support in awarding us this grant.
