At the beginning of this month, I photographed Katherine Keeney, the new Executive Director of the Epilepsy Foundation of Northern California, at the EFNC Youth Summer Camp in Occidental, California. SEE THE Photo GALLERY HERE!
I also photographed the campers, counselors and the medical volunteers, including Dr. Joe Sullivan from UC San Francisco. In Northern California, those of us with epilepsy are fortunate to have UCSF and other excellent hospitals and research facilities in our region.
We are also fortunate to have a new leader who also happens to have epilepsy. Being the leader of a regional epilepsy foundation and having epilepsy is quite rare. If my research is correct, the odds that someone will be a leader of an epilepsy foundation and have epilepsy are worse than the odds for just having epilepsy.
The odds are getting better now. At least it feels that way. Keep Calm and Fight On!
