Hi,

I'm Isabella, walk coordinator and epilepsy advocate. Thank you for helping to bring awareness and funding to our local epilepsy community through our support of the NC Epilepsy Alliance.

My Story

I'm a graduate of Hoggard High school and will be attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill this fall. At nine years old, I was diagnosed with Benign Rolandic Epilepsy after having my first seizure on family vacation. I have coped with my seizures on and off medication. I am one of the lucky few and have been seizure free for seven years. Paying for medication was never a struggle for my family, but I know that many people can’t say the same.

A few years ago, my family and I reached out to the Epilepsy Alliance North Carolina about their services. We were looking for a way to give back to the epilepsy community. Since then, I’ve led multiple teams in virtual runs and raised thousands of dollars for their medicine fund. I was even honored at a dinner in 2022 for my achievements and officially became an Epilepsy Alliance Ambassador.


Last year, I wanted to take things to a new level and start my own walk in Wilmington. I hope that Loop the Loop brings awareness to a cause that has and continues to affect so many people. The more I reach out to neighbors and friends, the more I learn how many people have been touched by the condition. Please join me in raising awareness and money by walking the loop this October!
