Just after his first birthday, six-year-old Ben Myers (pictured right) began having hundreds of seizures a day, for over a year, and was diagnosed with a catastrophic form of epilepsy caused by a rare mutation of the SCN2A gene. There is currently no cure for SC2NA. Due to the seizures, Ben can no longer talk, but he can give the best hugs! Please come out and support this sweet little boy and his family and help fight for a cure for SCN2A. All proceeds from the tournament go to Ben and his family to cover therapy, equipment, and other medical expenses not covered by insurance.
