Chris spent about one and a half days in Washington, D. C. this past April, with the Epilepsy Foundation's Kids Speak Up! program, joining more than 50 teens across the U.S. petitioning congressional leaders for more research and public education. The trip helped Chris to see the big picture, and helped showed Chris he was not alone.
