About the Foundation
The Foundation is setup as a Tribute to honor Joseph Martin Gomoll. Joey passed away unexpectedly on March 30, 2010. He was afflicted with Dravet s Syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy his entire life. While Joey was alive the doctors were never able to get his seizures completely under control.
Dravet s robbed Joey of most of the ability to speak, but it did not stop him from communicating with everyone he met no one that knew him will ever be able to hear Hi, How Are Ya? without smiling and it most certainly never prevented him from laughing, smiling, singing or dancing.
The Joseph Gomoll Foundation is setup to raise money in support of the Epilepsy Foundation. The goal is to raise money that can be used for research, treatment and support of those affected by this terrible disease. A small portion of the money raised will also go to the Early Childhood program in Joey s hometown to provide education and services for children with special needs, like Joey.
