The Annual Chad Barth – Concert for Epilepsy fundraiser is dedicated to and in honor of his sister Christina Ann Sauer, his cousin Ryan Blaess, both of whom suffer from severe versions of intractable seizure disorders. 

Christina Ann Sauer is 22 years old and has suffered with seizures since she was six months old.  Christina initially developed Infantile Spasms, which later developed into Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome.  Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome is a severe form of epilepsy that has multiple forms of intractable seizure types with a severe mental delay as a result.  Christina has undergone three neurosurgeries over her life in an effort to correct or control her epileptic condition as well as many regiments of medication and diet treatments.  Her seizures have not subsided thus far and have kept her at the learning/cognitive level of an 18-month child.

Ryan Blaess is 6 years old and has been diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome, also known as Severe Myoclonic Epilepsy of Infancy (SMEI).  This, too, is a severe intractable seizure disorder that results in a progressive childhood neurodevelopment disorder.

Additionally we welcome new 2010 team members - Tina Seppala & Jon Seaton and their daughter Annabelle Seaton and Tina's sister, Ashley Burton, who also manages with epilepsy.  Tina, Jon, Annabelle and Ashley join in honor and memory of Tina’s dad who died of a grand mal seizure 37 years ago.
