Lily's Friends Support Group

If you are a parent or caregiver of a child with epilepsy, want to join us for a cup of coffee?

Lily’s Friends is a local group whose purpose is to connect parents who have a child with epilepsy. We meet monthly to share information and experiences, and to talk about med side effects, new research, learning and social issues, the keto diet, our worries, our mistakes…whatever!

Our group is facilitated by Kristen Guetschow, who is a mother to a son with epilepsy, a psychologist at Glendale Elementary School and a friend of Lily’s Fund. The group’s power lies in the expertise of each family. We meet on Sundays from 3:30 – 5:00 pm at Barrique’s on Park Street.

2017 Schedule: January 8, February 12, March 12, April 23, May 21, no June meeting, July 9, August 13, September 10

For more information and updates from the group, see our Lily’s Friends Facebook Group.

Volunteer: Donate your time and talent

Lily’s Fund is volunteer led, which means we can always use some help! Whether it be helping with a fundraiser, rallying people at your school or office to wear purple for Purple Day, hosting a lemonade stand, creating a brochure, or a whole host of other tasks that need to be done, we hope you’ll join us!
