In August, we took a trip to Courtagen Life Sciences in Woburn, MA. We learned so much about what they do and the incredible advancements they are making in the field of genetic research. Courtagen is committed to helping physicians, families, and children suffering with neurological disorders. The company's test results provide doctors with genetic information to help diagnose disease and guide treatment decisions. Genetic testing can lead to positive changes or, in some cases, major improvements in a child’s quality of life. Hailey sat down with the Courtagen team to interview several of them and to find out how they are making a difference. We were excited to tour their lab and see the work they have done to help children with epilepsy and give families and physicians information that can change lives. Look for a video coming soon!
The total raised for Lemonade for Livy this year is approaching $25,000! What an amazing job by everyone who either helped with the campaign or hosted a stand. We are grateful to so many people who went above and beyond including Mo and the team at the Epilepsy Foundation, the participating Epilepsy Foundation affiliates, our family and friends and many new friends from across the country. This year, along with lemonade stands, people held parties, a crafting night, a bowling event, bake sales virtual lemonade stands and more. Remember, you can hold an event anytime during the year. just go Lemonade for Livy on Crowdrise to register. We are already starting to plan for next year and are excited for all that is to come!
