Founded by Chicagoans Mike and Mariann Stanton in January 2010 after the death of their four-year-old son Danny, the Danny Did Foundation works toward its mission to prevent deaths caused by seizures with these main goals in mind: advancing public awareness of Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP), enhancing SUDEP education and disclosure between medical professionals and families afflicted by seizures, and the mainstreaming of seizure detection and prediction devices that may assist in preventing seizure-related deaths.

"We just wanted to say thank you again for the Sami cameras for my daughter Annie-Anne. So not only are we catching seizures we didn’t know she was having we have also been able to pick up extra movement through the whole night which then led me to message her sleep medicine doctor and we had her iron levels checked and they were low so ever since starting the iron Annie is having less seizures and is sleeping more peaceful at night I just wanted to share and say thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"
Thank you and the Danny Did foundation for your assistance with this purchase. Without it we would not have been able to secure this monitoring device for our daughter. We are truly thankful.
"The DDF sponsored my son for a device grant. It has been nearly one month of use and I am blown away! Previously it was a guessing game of, “Did he have a seizure last night?” We just met with his neurologist yesterday and it made the appointment so much better. We have clear video down to the seconds of his seizure from beginning to end to show our doctor. He appreciated it as well since having this can help him with his care plan for my son. The generosity of the DDF has been a lifesaver for our family. I am positive that future families who receive help will feel the same way. Please never give up and continue the good fight against Epilepsy and the awareness it needs. Always look back on the children who can now receive better care because of Danny’s legacy!"
