Hello, I’m Channing Seideman, a passionate advocate striving to improve the quality of life for individuals navigating epilepsy. I’m 26 and have been confronting the challenges of epilepsy since the age of 9. Despite this condition persistently being a part of my life, I’ve adamantly refused to let it define or hinder my aspirations.

My journey with epilepsy has been intertwined with my love for horse jumping. When my seizures posed a threat to my goals in this competitive field, I adopted an ingenious solution. Wearing an inflatable vest provided a layer of protection against potential falls during seizures, allowing me to pursue my passion without compromising safety.

Determined not to allow my condition to limit my professional endeavors, I delved into the health industry. As a medical transcriptionist, I found a fulfilling path despite the hurdles posed by epilepsy.

Presently, I’m honored to contribute to the impactful work at the non-profit organization, May We Help. It’s a privilege to be part of an institution dedicated to supporting individuals and enhancing their lives. Through my role at this non-profit, I continue my commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of those facing similar challenges to my own.

My experiences have forged a deep understanding of the struggles and triumphs encountered by those living with epilepsy. I’m dedicated to advocating for awareness, support, and solutions that can elevate the quality of life for people navigating similar journeys.

In the face of adversity, I’ve found resilience and strength, and I’m driven to empower others to confront their challenges and pursue their aspirations, irrespective of any limitations epilepsy may present. Together, let’s continue to foster understanding, support, and progress for individuals living with epilepsy.
