The family and friends of Elias Hill are uniting to raise money to help treat his rare form of epilepsy known as Doose Syndrome.

Our son, Elias (age 2 1/2), was diagnosed with a rare form of epilepsy known as Doose Syndrome, or Myoclonic-Astatic Epilepsy, in July of 2012.  Doose syndrome is resistant to medication and is very difficult to control.  Before medication, Elias was having up to 15 seizures a day, and those are only the ones we noticed.  Doose syndrome can often lead to a long term, cognitive learning disability.  Elias's best chance of success is to gain control of his epilepsy as quickly as we can, which requires expensive tests and medications.

We need help covering the cost of his medical bills, including his MRI, EEG and genetic testing. These bills are hitting us fast and hard!  We are so thankful for your thoughts and prayers and for your financial support.  We couldn't get his treatment without it.  Thank you!
