The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation helps to provide those that are Epileptic service dogs that can be life changing for them.

The main focus is to raise funds to provide grants for seizure-response dogs. These trained companion dogs may be able to detect an oncoming seizure and provide warnings and/or respond after the onset of a seizure.
The Foundation also provides Emfit, SmartWatch and SAMiAlert movement monitors for those in need.
They provided all three of my kids with these monitors.What a blessing peace of mind is.
is named for Julie and Doug's beloved daughter, Chelsea, who died in her sleep during a seizure in April of 2009. SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy) was the cause of her death. During the 6 years that Chelsea had seizures, no one ever told the Hutchisons a seizure could take her life, other than through an accidental fall or drowning. As a result of that omission, the Chelsea Hutchison Foundation informs those living with epilepsy of the risks and raises awareness of SUDEP so that no other families are blind-sided.
