Statement of Purpose: The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation is a Colorado non-profit corporation formed to help individuals, particularly children and young adults, who have epilepsy. The main focus is to raise funds to provide grants for seizure-response dogs. These trained service dogs may be able to detect an oncoming seizure and provide warnings and/or respond after the onset of a seizure. The Foundation also provides Emfit movement monitors and grants for SmartWatch monitors for those in need. Emfit monitors are the latest technology for monitoring an individual who, during sleep, may experience seizures which a caregiver or family should be alerted to. The SmartWatch is a patented, intelligent, motion detecting and alerting wristwatch. SmartWatch is a fully portable non-invasive device that continuously monitors movement, analyzes the information for abnormalities, issues alerts and securely records seizure events. The Foundation is named for Chelsea, who died in her sleep during a seizure in April of 2009. SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy) was the cause of her death. During the 6 years that Chelsea had seizures, no one ever told us a seizure could take her life, other than through an accidental fall or drowning. As a result of that omission, the Chelsea Hutchison Foundation informs those living with epilepsy of the risks and raises awareness of SUDEP so that no other families are blind-sided.
