“I’ve known Henry for a while and we’ve always been friends, I remember how scary his seizures were in elementary school and I hoped to help out one day. I am so happy and proud to have been an ambassador for so long and to help fight the epilepsy monster with some awesome people.”
I would always see Henry at school from a very young age and I always wanted to help. Being a Hero has given me that opportunity to help not only Henry but everyone who is effected by Epilepsy. It is amazing how one person can start something that makes so much change and I am honored to be a part of it. ~Penny Popoff

” I have known Henry since I was 8 and right from the start, being part of Henry’s Heroes has always been is a big, important part of my life. I am inspired by Henry and his determination to fight epilepsy. Each month Henry is seizure-free feels like a celebration. He has persevered and now Henry is almost at 20 months seizure-free! I am so proud to be a HERO and help make a difference for those fighting epilepsy.”

” Our hearts are amazing. They love, they break. They are individual. Yours is far different than anyone else’s. it beats to its own course. It’s mourned, it’s had joy, it’s fluttered and raced It’s been crushed and shattered but yet has bursted with pride. Our Hearts are raw and strong but never waiver. They follow the path we set for them until they no longer can. “
