Advancing Awareness of Epilepsy & Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP)

Img 1

Founded by Chicagoans Mike and Mariann Stanton after the Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP) of their son Danny just before his fifth birthday, the Danny Did Foundation is dedicated in its mission to prevent deaths caused by seizures. The name of the foundation comes from the last line of Danny's obituary, written by his dad: Please go and enjoy your life. Danny did.

Seizure First Aid

Roll the person on their side, ensure their airway is clear and loosen tight neckwear.

Stay calm. You can't stop the seizure.

If the seizure persists for more than 5 minutes, or if you're concerned for the person's safety, call 9-1-1.
