Jodi Ortiz, CFO
A hard worker, dedicated & passionate, a real friend, a beautiful wife, and an amazing mother of two. Her passion to raise Epilepsy Awareness originated from the love and support for her son who started fighting the battle to beat Epilepsy at just over a year old. Followed by years of research, treatment plan & changes, medication, and tests; they have been making progress with controlling her son Nikolas's seizures.
The Birth of "Run Run Run"
In 2006, Nikolas watched his Aunt Voni run her first marathon in Sacramento with the California International Marathon. Cheering for her on the course, he yells, "RUN RUN RUN!" "And so it was born!"
In 2013 Nikolas suffered a Grand Mal Seizure followed by repeated seizure activities and countless visits to the ER. Unable to obtain stability, he was transferred to UCSF Children's Hospital where we were introduced to a team of Epileptologists including Dr. Joseph Sullivan. We saw immediate results with the new diagnosis and treatment plan. "His quality of life was coming back..." One of the many reason why it is so important to raise awareness and find the resources and help you need.
