Exotic Supercar Show and Rally - September 8, 2013

Mary Lou and I are pleased to announce an Epilepsy Awareness update. September 8th, 2013. We are combining our enthusiasm for fine automobiles and our passion for a cure for epilepsy into this fun event. The attached flyer explains how you might be able to participate or donate towards the ongoing research. All donations and raffle tickets are 100% directed to the Epilepsy Research Foundation. The restaurants and vendors involved are donating a substantial portion of their receipts from the afternoon as well.

Contact information is on the flyer. If you are not able to attend, but prefer to donate directly, please reply email and we will follow up with more instructions.

We are making great strides in the effort to find a cure for Epilepsy, through daily treatment and ongoing research being conducted by both Sutter Medical Center, and the UC Davis Health - Bronte Epilepsy Research Program.

These groups are exploring many exciting new possibilities:

Improve learning and memory performance in patients with epilepsy using deep brain stimulation, (DBS).

Theta stimulation of patients with epilepsy, to determine if stimulation of hippocampal circuits also benefits patients with head injury, Parkinson's disease, stroke, etc.

MRI-guided Thermal Laser Tissue Ablation. Children and adults no longer have to undergo an open craniotomy to destroy the tissue causing their seizures. Laser ablation is a minimally invasive technology that pinpoints and destroys problematic tissue in seconds.

Delivering a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation and treatment program, employing cutting edge monitoring techniques and medical surgical treatment, to identify an individually tailored plan.

These are just a few of the wonderful improvements brought about by specifically targeting donations for Epilepsy to programs that will benefit many types of brain disorders.

We look forward to seeing you, this will be a wonderful opportunity to view beautiful limited version automobiles, up close, and learn more about how your donations help.
