Lemonade for Livy

Official Weekend
July 28 - 30, 2017

Lemonade for Livy raises epilepsy awareness and supports the Epilepsy Foundation’s work to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives through lemonade stands and parties. The campaign brings people from around the world together to give hope to those with epilepsy and their families. The event occurs yearly and continues to grow in size and impact. While the last weekend of July is the official weekend, you can set up your stand or hold an event anytime.

We all have our unique stories and experiences with epilepsy. Collectively, we make up the epilepsy community and family. As a family, we need to work as one to raise awareness, provide support, and fund research that will lead to a cure. 65 million people around the world live with epilepsy. That doesn’t include the tens of millions of family members and friends who are also impacted by the disorder. Think of the power we have when we all work toward a common mission.

Honored Hero

12-year-old Olivia Scheinman (Livy) is the inspiration and symbol behind Lemonade for Livy, a movement created by her family’s organization, Livy’s Hope. Since birth, Livy has been plagued by the damaging effects of epilepsy. She has endured multiple major brain surgeries but the seizures persist.

What started as one neighborhood lemonade stand to raise money in honor of Livy is expanding into a global campaign. It continues to grow because of Livy's twin sister Hailey and the special bond the girls share, a mother's love, and a father's promise made long ago.
