SHS FACES Club Annual Jewelry Sale
"We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same." -Carlos Castenada
My name is Caroline and I am sixteen. I was diagnosed with epilepsy when I was eleven years old. In the past five years, I have had ten seizures. I had nine seizures when I was eleven and twelve and then for three and a half years, I did not have any seizures. On December 16, 2013 I was blindsided while at a lacrosse game and had another grande mal seizure. I also struggle with chronic migraines, but I'm learning to be strong. My name is Brady Olcott and I am seventeen years old. Caroline is one of my best friends and I have witnessed three of her seizures. Because I have been there, I can see how seizures can affect someone. I have also realized that with this FACES club I can help her and others who suffer with Epilepsy. Caroline's older sister, Marion, started a club at Summit High School to support FACES. When Marion graduated, we continued the club. The Summit High School FACES club raises money through bake sales and out-of-school events, like our Annual Jewelry Sale. Our goal for this year is to raise $4,000. We don't only want to raise money, but we want to raise awareness of what epilepsy is and how it affects us. Every day can be a struggle but with support of friends and family, and FACES, we can make ourselves strong. Brady Olcott and Caroline Sayre
