HOPE4SUDEP
Web Event

Event Overview

HOPE4SUDEP is an ongoing initiative to honor the life of Cameron Benninghoven who passed away in 2009 from Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP). Cameron’s family and friends have partnered with CURE to maximize their fundraising and awareness efforts. Your tax-deductible donation to CURE will be recognized as a contribution in memory of Cameron. Donations will be used for SUDEP and epilepsy research to investigate causes and prevention of seizures. We hope you will consider giving to HOPE4SUDEP.

Cameron's Story     DONATE

We are fortunate to have attained our goal of raising $100,000 annually in 2014, 2015, 2016, and again in 2017! Those funds have supported SUDEP research in honor of Cameron Benninghoven. Please take a moment to read more about the multi-year research initiatives funded by clicking on the names of  Edward Glasscock, PhD (2012) and Kristina Simeone, PhD (2016).  These grants take a deeper look into the mechanisms and triggers of SUDEP.

Our goal for the year 2018 is again $100,000, creating a lasting legacy for Cameron. We hope you will help.
