Jackie Quetti's Fundraising Page

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for EPILEPSY FOUNDATION OF MASSACHUSETTS/RHODE ISLAND/NEW HAMPSHIRE/MAINE!

The past year has been an amazing journey for me.  As many of you know, I have lived with epilepsy most of my life and experienced my first tonic clonic seizure in Marcy of 2009.  This led me to contact the website of the Epilepsy Foundation of MA/RI/NH/ME to learn more about my condition.  Since then, my family and I have had some amazing experiences.  This is thanks to the people at the Foundation who have become our friends and provided me with unbelievable opportunities to help raise funding, awareness and support for epilepsy.  Here are just some of the incredible things that I have been a part of:

  • Organizing the first ever Western Massachusetts Walk for the Epilepsy Foundation of MA/RI/NH/ME and raising over $18,000 - thanks to wonderful supporters like you!
  • Providing testimony at the Statehouse in Boston regarding notification to physicians and patients when switching brand name and generic drugs and appearing on two Springfield news channels to tell my story.
  • Traveling to Washington, DC with my mom in March to attend Kids Speak Up!, sponsored by the Epilepsy Foundation, and visiting Congressman Olver and Senators Brown and Kerry's offices to rally support and funding for epilepsy research, education and support.
  • Forming a Western Massachusetts Council for EFMA/RI/NH/ME to establish advocacy, educational and support services here in Berkshire County and in other WM communities.
  • Being chosen as a sectional winner of The National Spirit of Sport Award, thanks to the nomination by Mr. Jim Abel, Athletic Director at PHS/THS, for my fundraising efforts for epilepsy.
  • Serving as this year's grand marshal of Pittsfield's Fourth of July Parade, for which the theme was "We The People" and which celebrated diversity.

Finding my voice has helped me to not only deal with having seizures every day, but helped me to know that I can make a difference.  None of the great things that have happened for me in the past year would have been possible without the assistance of others. Please consider supporting our efforts again this year - we need your help!  There are three million Americans living with epilepsy and over 200,000 new cases expected to be diagnosed this year.  With your help, we can continue to raise awareness, fund research and education, provide support services and eventually, find a cure!

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!

Sincerely,

Jackie
