For me, it was my Grandfather, who believed in me completely and thought that I could do anything I set out to do.


In Tribute to Charlie Petersen

Charlie Peterson was a man who suffered from epilepsy for decades. He had one unsuccessful brain surgery, then another, which was successful, ten years later.

Since that time, he had risen to be an active advocate and to give back by helping all those in need.

He was my friend and a friend to the world. Starting a support group where there was none. Counseling others with epilepsy and those who had a loved one with epilepsy.

He was generous to a fault, giving back in turn for the “miracle” that had saved his life.

He was patient, kind, generous and giving. He was my #1 hero.
