Way to go David. Praying for the whole family.

While we are typically private about our children's health matters, many of you know that for the past 7 years our oldest daughter has lived with the daily struggle of a seizure disorder often referred to as Epilepsy.

She had her first seizure at age 9 months and since that time there has been countless sleepless nights and hospital stays wondering what the future will bring. We are so thankful each day that she is currently defying the odds in terms of her normal development...loving first grade and all the joy that each day brings.

While she has been given great medical care by the doctors at NYU Langone Medical Center and received an untold amount of prayers (we thank you and keep them coming), we are still unable to completely control the seizures. They still strike at any time.

As a father, there is no worse feeling than being unable to stop the suffering in your child. I decided to run this half marathon because I feel that I need to do more to help her and am very hopeful that the funds raised by your contributions will aid in the research needed to find a cure not only for my daughter, but for the millions of individuals and families dealing with the day to day haunting shadow that a seizure disorder brings. Thank you for considering a donation to FACES (Finding a Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures). It is a great charity doing wonderful work. Sincerely, David Farkas
