Yara’s Fund

When Yara Heston passed away in 2005, her mother and long-time Epilepsy Foundation of Delaware supporter, Judy Curtis, turned a tragedy into a way to help individuals with epilepsy. Judy and her husband Bill encourage their family and friends to contribute each year to Yara’s Fund at the Epilepsy Foundation of Delaware directly and through an annual fundraising event they host.

Yara was a positive and courageous person.  This fund celebrates her life by supporting programs that help those living with epilepsy and to reduce the stigmas often associated with it.

Over the years, more than $25,000 has been donated in Yara’s name.  Click here to make a donation to Yara’s Fund.
