We are fortunate to be spending some time this Friday afternoon with a wonderful Delaware family we recently met, named the Raineys.  Their youngest daughter, Amanda has been chosen as the Honorary Ambassador for the Stroll For Epilepsy coming up in January.  The Rainey family consists of mom (Maryann), dad (Matt), eight-year-old Sara, four-year-old Zachary, and six-year-old Amanda.  

The local media has been invited to their Delaware home for a chance to meet Amanda, her family, and Irene Baird, the Executive Director of the Epilepsy Foundation of Central Ohio. Should be a great photo opportunity!!! 

Amanda, who has suffered from seizures since she was six months old, has a big job ahead of her as the Honorary Child Ambassador. The Rainey family has been involved with the Epilepsy Foundation Stroll for five years and are thrilled to advocate, raise funds and help in every way for this year’s event. Matt Rainey, a Market Operations Support Analyst for AEP, got his company involved and they are the presenting sponsor this year.
