Giving a HERO High Five to Grace Melancon and George Baillos! Meet two of our Ambassadors this weekend and see why they like to do what they do!

“I have grown up with Henry and I’ve known him most of my life. I began to see my friend Henry struggle with epilepsy. I saw first hand the serious impact epilepsy has on someone and the people around them. Watching him go through this upset me, and I wanted to do whatever I could to help Henry. Henry’s heroes has shown me that when people come together they can make a huge impact. It is so rewarding to help support Henry and do my part to help fight epilepsy. The Henry’s heroes foundation has taken an unideal situation and turned it into something wonderful. I am so grateful to be a part of it and work with some amazing people.”

“Being a HERO is important to me because it allows me to make actual change in the world while supporting my friend Henry.”

” I love helping Henry’s Heroes in every way I can and knowing I am part of something that actively helps Henry and others affected by Epilepsy is a great feeling!” ~ Elissa Dziersk

“I’ve known Henry since elementary school, and he was always a good friend to me. It always seemed unfair that Henry couldn’t do everything I could, even small things like going over to someone else’s house or playing sports because of his Epilepsy. This motivated me to become part of Henry’s Heroes and I am super excited to be an ambassador.” ~ Jack Hales

“Henry has been my friend as long as I can remember. We used to sword-fight and play hide and seek in the basement for hours on end. When he began having seizures, I remember being really sad for my friend. I wanted to help him, and Heroes has created that opportunity. Heroes has been an incredible part of my life, and I’ve been honored to join Henry and the rest of the heroes on this journey. We’ve put up an amazing fight against the epilepsy monster so far, and I can’t wait to see the impact we make going forward!” ~ Callie Lloyd- Jones

“I have known Henry since 5th grade where I experienced him have a seizure in class. It inspired me to join Henry in the fight of Epilepsy. Henry’s HEROES has been a big part of my life since I met Henry and I love being a part of of HEROES because it gives me the opportunity to make a difference in one of my great friends lives, but also have a bigger impact.

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

” 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. “


“I’ve known Henry since 5th grade and I am so grateful to be apart of Henry’s Heroes Foundation. Henry and I have become so close and I am so lucky to call him one of my closest friends. The foundation and journey of Henry fighting epilepsy is super cool and I am so excited for this community to grow!”
