Keith and Norma Chrisman of Little Falls laced up their shoes Sunday morning as Walk Ambassadors for the Epilepsy Foundation of Northeastern New York’s Walk to END EPILEPSY. They and several others participated in honor of their late son, Kevin, who was diagnosed with epilepsy at age 16. He passed away due to SUDEP, Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy, at the age of 22.
Kevin was an avid sportsman and always wore his favorite number, 33, on his jersey. The Chrisman’s keep his memory alive with their team name “#ForeverOur33”.

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder defined as having two or more recurring seizures; it can happen to anyone, at any age, at any time. One in 26 people will be diagnosed with epilepsy in their lifetime. Epilepsy is more common than Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease combined.
