The National Epilepsy World Changer Awards Gala was held at the historical Thomas Mellon Auditorium in Washington DC. A night of history, amazing people who have done incredible work to bring us closer to a cure of epilepsy, and inspiring performances and speakers. The best news came in a letter this past week from Phil Gattone, President and CEO of the National Epilepsy Foundation. The Gala this year raised over $450,000 dollars that will go towards helping families and patients that deal with epilepsy! A huge congratulations to Phil and Jill Gattone on their recent move to DC. We met them when Phil was in Chicago working for the Greater Chicago Area Epilepsy Foundation. He was doing amazing work there and we are truly lucky to have him in Washington now!
