Chelsea Hutchison Foundation
Granting Comfort and Hope
The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation is a Colorado non-profit corporation formed by Julie and Doug Hutchison to provide help to individuals who have epilepsy. Funds raised by this Foundation provide grants for trained seizure-response dogs and seizure movement monitors for those in need. The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation is named for Julie and Doug's beloved daughter, Chelsea, who died in her sleep during a seizure in April of 2009. SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy) was the cause of her death. During the 6 years that Chelsea had seizures, no one over told the Hutchisons a seizure could take her life, other than through an accidental fall or drowning. As a result of that omission, The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation raises SUDEP Awareness so other families are not blindsided.
