In 2014, Cam spent two weeks in the seizure monitoring unit at Foothills Medical Centre. Connected to a computer with electrodes attached to his head he was monitored 24 hours a day. The length of these cables allowed him to walk about 15 meters to the washroom and an exercise bike.
That time gave the opportunity to think about the incredible people who were trying to make a difference to his life.
“[It’s an] amazing groups of professionals within the Epilepsy Program. There are many different disciplines doing their part,” said Cam. “To express my thanks to all the Doctors, disciplines and supporting staff, I wanted to raise some funds for the Seizure Monitoring Unit.”
In 2015 Cam decided he would cycling through the Canadian Rockies to bring some awareness to Adult Epilepsy and raise funds for that department of Clinical Neuroscience.
