The mission of the Danny Did Organization is to create a reality in which healthcare providers proactively communicate with patients and caregivers about the risk of SUDEP and other forms of mortality associated with epilepsy. To elevate awareness of, and access to, technologies that enable early intervention and added safety when a seizure occurs.
While no device has been proven to prevent epilepsy-related mortality (including SUDEP), the Danny Did Foundation is devoted to seeking out seizure detection and seizure prediction devices - as well as other technologies - that are designed to enable intervention by a caregiver. Intervention is believed to reduce the risks that accompany epilepsy. They present these products for further review and investigation by anyone connected to seizure disorders.
One Service is a grant to assist individuals with purchasing some devices that can enable early detection of an epileptic episode.
