Texas - Fort Worth Sharon's Ride 2017

Team Austin

Austin Cline gained his angel wings March 3, 2016. He lost his battle to epilepsy after 13 years of fighting hard and trying multiple seizure medications and the vns device. He was surround by many family and friends and he is greatly missed. This year we will be doing the stroll in honor of our sweet angel. Austin Cline diagnoses included but not limited to MECP2 Duplication Syndrome, Lennox Gastaut Syndrome and Chronic Intestinal Pseudo Obstruction. He spent all his life in and out of hospital with many surgeries and finding new ways to "save" his life until there was nothing else that could be done. The last couple years of his life his seizures had gotten worse and worse as the months passed and no medication was able to control them. At one point he was on adult doses of all his meds and taking 14 pills a day and a liquid of another and those were just his seizure meds. He had a GJ feeding tube, a ileostomy bag and a VNS just to keep him alive but his quality of life went downhill quickly with each seizure. He got to the point towards the end he was having over 100 seizures a day and required oxygen during some of them until he could catch his breath again. As much as he struggled, we know he is better. That does not help with the great amount of pain we as parents suffer from losing a child. We will never stop loving or missing him. We will never forget him. He will always be our baby. Help us raise money or be a part of our team this year in honor of our sweet angel Austin!
