Team Emily

Our team is walking in memory of Emily Yish, a beautiful person inside and out who was taken from us too soon. Emily started having seizures at the age of 11 after she developed encephalitis following a rare infection. Although the frequent seizures made life very difficult, Emily managed to keep up with her schoolwork, play basketball and softball, and participate in many activities. She was a huge hockey fan, with her heart belonging to the New York Islanders and their farm team, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. She was also a New York Yankees fan, but hockey definitely came before baseball in her opinion. Emily was prescribed many medications over the next 8 years, but her seizures were never fully controlled. Sadly, Emily, a college sophomore, passed away in her sleep at the age of 19 as a result of SUDEP. Our team is participating because Emily was determined not to let epilepsy define her. She handled the seizures, medication side effects, and many doctor visits and hospitalizations with grace, but wanted so badly to live seizure-free. If she were still here with us, she would be leading the way to help others affected by epilepsy.
