This September, 9-year-old Haley Walker of Palmyra, VA is having a lemonade stand in honor of her 3-year-old brother with epilepsy.

At first, Haley was afraid of her brother's seizures. She was scared that something would happen to him, but later understood that it is a livable condition. As she advocates for her brother, she wishes to raise awareness for epilepsy and money for the Epilepsy Foundation of Virginia (EFVA). 

She will sell lemonade, water and self-baked cookies at the Palmyra Volunteer Fire Company, who is hosting a bake and yard sale on September 23rd from 8 AM -1 PM at 14567 James Madison Highway, Palmyra, VA. All funds raised will be donated to the Epilepsy Foundation of Virginia in her brother's honor.

Thank you Haley for caring about your family's epilepsy hero!  

If you would like to donate supplies to Haley, she is in need of bottled water, frozen or bottled lemonade mix, and cups, contact us at srb3m@virginia.edu to connect you with her family!
