My Seizure Dog by Evan Moss

My Seizure Dog, written and illustrated by 7-year-old Evan Moss, tells the sweet story of what Evan expects the relationship with his seizure dog to be like. The revenue this book generates will help train and care for Evan's seizure dog. Available through for only $10. Since donations have skyrocketed Evan will donate the proceeds to help other kids who need trained dogs.
Evan Moss is a 7-year-old boy who has Tuberous Sclerosis and Epilepsy. He began having seizures in his first month of life and by the time he was 4 years old, he was having 300-400 seizures a month. At this young age he underwent brain surgery to control his Epilepsy and he left the hospital seizure-free. He had freedom from seizures for almost 2 years and is now experiencing them again, although less frequently. Evan has 3-4 seizures a month, but because they last several minutes, medical intervention is always necessary to stop his seizures. Evan and his family are very excited about having a seizure dog and believe this new member of the family will keep Evan safe by making sure his parents know when he is having a seizure as well as provide greater independence for Evan.
