Michael Toole: A Charity Runner for Children’s Hospital Boston

It’s that time of year again; the time when we get to meet and hear the stories of local residents who are training to run the Boston Marathon. In the eight years that I have covered local Hopkinton news, I have met and written about my next door neighbor, a friend, and a marathoner from Greece. Today, I’d like to introduce you to Michael Toole and his daughter, Avery.

The Seizure Disorder

If you saw someone immediately stop what they were doing and begin to stare off into space for several minutes, what would you think? Or if you saw a person suddenly fall to the ground and shake all over, what would you do?

In both cases, the person could be having a seizure, and you might be witnessing the effects of epilepsy, a neurological disorder that affects nearly three million Americans, half of whom are children.

We're caught in a seasonal 'tween' time again. Winter has almost relinquished its grip on us. But, dirty snow banks and drifts still cover our yards. The half melted mush makes it almost impossible to enjoy a walk on our favorite trail. In a few more week most of the snow will yield to warmer temperatures and early spring rains, firmly leaving the outdoors in mud season.
