Please help us to honor Danny by donating to his Birthday Campaign. Your gift will give kids with epilepsy the chance to celebrate their next birthday, and many more to come.

The Stantons lost their son to Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP), just before his 5th birthday. His new place in the world continues through his Foundation, helping families who face epilepsy.

WHY GIVE? The Danny Did Foundation takes pride in providing near-term, practical resources for those who face seizures. Our grant program allows families-in-need to secure seizure detection devices. These devices will alarm a caregiver when their loved one is experiencing a seizure. Using a detection device brings peace of mind into many homes.

Because epilepsy is a disease laced with uncertainty, we work with urgency so our impact can be immediate. Patients and parents need help NOW.

Your donation is the gift of safety. And your donation is the gift of hope.

We love you, Danny boy.

About Danny Did Foundation: Founded by parents Mike and Mariann Stanton in 2010 after the sudden death of their four-year-old son Danny, the Danny Did Foundation's primary mission is to prevent deaths caused by seizures. The Foundation advances awareness of epilepsy and the risk of SUDEP, strengthens SUDEP communication between medical providers and families, and advocates for the mainstream acceptance and use of seizure detection and prediction devices that may assist in preventing seizure-related deaths. We provide practical, near-term resources to patients, parents and families in need.

Epilepsy affects nearly 3.5 million people in the United States and 65 million people worldwide. One in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy during their lifetime. But what few people understand, including many people impacted by the disorder, is that seizures can be fatal. More people die as a result of seizures than from fires and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) combined. The causes of mortality can vary and include drowning, other accidents and status epilepticus (prolonged seizures). In addition, thousands of deaths occur annually from SUDEP, a fact that is little known and too rarely addressed in public and in medical circles. The name of the Danny Did Foundation originates from the last line of Danny Stanton's obituary, written by his dad: "Please go and enjoy your life. Danny did."
