Lemonade for Livy

November 6, 2018 | By |

Lemonade for Livy raises epilepsy awareness and supports the Epilepsy Foundation’s work to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives through lemonade stands and parties. These events bring people together from around the world together to give hope to those with epilepsy and their families.

We all have our unique stories and experiences with epilepsy. Collectively, we make up the epilepsy community and family. As a family, we need to work as one to raise awareness, provide support, and fund research that will lead to a cure. 65 million people around the world live with epilepsy. That doesn’t include the tens of millions of family members and friends who are also impacted by the disorder. Think of the power we have when we all work toward a common mission.

Honored Hero

Olivia Scheinman (Livy) is the inspiration and symbol behind Lemonade for Livy, a movement created by her family’s organization, Livy’s Hope. Since birth, Livy has been plagued by the damaging effects of epilepsy. She has endured multiple major brain surgeries but the seizures persist.

What started as one neighborhood lemonade stand to raise money in honor of Livy is expanding into a global campaign. It continues to grow because of Livy’s twin sister Hailey and the special bond the girls share, a mother’s love, and a father’s promise made long ago. For more information about Lemonade for Livy, please visit www.LivysHope.com.

Your Honored Hero

Join Livy as a hero and hold a Lemonade for Livy event for someone you know with epilepsy too!

Create Your Own Event

  • Hold a Lemon or Lemonade-themed Happy Hour at your home, apartment, or place of residence or set one up with a friend!
  • Host a dinner party or get together with friends and/or family
  • Any type of Lemon-themed party for birthdays, special occasions, etc.
  • Host a lemon-themed bake sale
  • Hold an event or lemonade stand on your college campus with friends or as part of a sorority/fraternity event
  • Create your own lemon-themed craft party event

The possibilities are ENDLESS and getting started is EASY!

Camp Candlelight

April 24, 2014 | By |

 

Camp Candlelight 2020 will take place May 24th – May 30th at Camp Sky-Y in Prescott, AZ

2019 CAMP APPLICATION DEADLINE HAS PASSED.

About Camp Candlelight

For an entire week, children with epilepsy (ages 8-17), enjoy all the fun activities and friendships that come with a classic trip to summer camp. While partaking in camp adventures and entertainment, the children are able to leave behind various challenges epilepsy can bring to their daily lives. At Camp Candlelight, campers are surrounded by dozens of other campers who have epilepsy and share in many of the same experiences stemming from the seizure disorder. Camp is often the first time many children meet others their age with epilepsy. Imagine the unique opportunity children have by not worrying about what people think if they have a seizure or if they will be excluded from activities just because they are different. At Camp Candlelight, epilepsy is the norm.

Camp Candlelight features activities such as: rock climbing, high ropes course, s’mores around the campfire, paintball, swimming, Studio E, epilepsy informational sessions and nature hikes. More important than the activities, Camp Candlelight is an opportunity to bond with other children who experience a seizure disorder.

Camper Eligibility Requirements:

  • Have a diagnosis of epilepsy or seizure disorders
  • Be ages 8 through 17 (exceptions on case by case basis depending upon doctor’s note regarding child’s cognitive level)
  • Be able to feed, bathe, dress and toilet with minimal assistance

 

We’d like to thank and recognize our 2019 Camp Candlelight Sponsors for their generous support!
