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.
This fund supports the emergency medication program where individuals with epilepsy who struggle to pay for their medication can receive assistance with a one month’s supply of medication.
Over $5,000 in assistance is provided on an annual basis, and requests for medication assistance continue to come in to the Epilepsy Foundation of Delaware. Click here to make a donation to Yara’s Fund.
