GOOD NEWS: Epilepsy Warrior

The Odessa Police Department recently hosted a special fundraiser for the daughter (Emma) of one of the OPD officers. More than $7,000 was raised.

Emma suffers from a severe form of epilepsy called Migratory Partial Seizures of Infancy as a result of a KCNT1 gene defect. Emma was diagnosed with this at two-months-old and was suffering from this since she was five days old.

The fundraiser will go to medical bills and a bathroom remodel that can accommodate Emma.
