WELCOME TO MY 2022 FUNDRAISING PAGE! In 2021, you guys helped Charlie's Chance singlehandedly raise thousands for the Epilepsy Foundation! Let's do it again!

Hi there! My name is Elaina Burt! I am Miss Jefferson County’s Outstanding Teen and an Epilepsy Awareness Ambassador for the Epilepsy Foundation of America. The MAOT organization and the Epilepsy Foundation of Alabama have given me the opportunity to invest in and find a voice for my social impact initiative, Charlie’s Chance. Charlie’s Chance was created out of a desire to advocate for patients like my little cousin, Charlie. Charlie was diagnosed with a rare form of epilepsy when she was only a few months old and I’ve seen first hand the struggles that epilepsy creates…but equally as important, I’ve seen what it takes to overcome epilepsy one day at a time! 

I am currently raising funds to make a difference in the lives of people living with epilepsy. The mission of the Epilepsy Foundation is to lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives. 

Please support this cause by making a safe and secure donation to my fundraising webpage. Giving to the Epilepsy Foundation means you make the world a better, easier, more manageable place for the 3.4 million people in the U.S. who are living with epilepsy and seizures. 

You can also visit my website at www.CharliesChance.org to follow my journey as Miss Leeds Area's Outstanding Teen and as an ambassador for the Epilepsy Foundation of AL. 

Thank you for your help and support!  

With love,

Elaina Burt
