Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that causes
sudden recurrent episodes of sensory disturbance,
loss of consciousness, or convulsions, associated
with abnormal electrical activity in the brain.

The “Seize the Cure” event was inspired by Maliq
Fenelon, the son of Tara Gibson (BKA TJ Vida
of the music group and the event’s organizers
Diverse Gravity). Maliq suffers from Refractory
Epilepsy which is a form of Epilepsy that
is not controlled by seizure medications and is
extremely difficult to treat and manage and
one of the reasons for that being there are
usually no signs, triggers or a recognizable
patterns of occurrence.

“My son has had 45 seizures in a year, and
half which medications have yet to control
and when medications lessen the quantity
of seizures within a month, the side effects
are still unbearable.” Tara Gibson expresses
as a concerned mother. “Due to his condition
being life threatening, his chances for SUDEP
(Sudden Unexpected Death of Someone with
Epilepsy) are higher. This obviously has
taken a huge toll on me as his mother, his father
and our family who fear for his
life everyday. In addition, his condition has
taken a toll on me in more ways than any parent
can imagine having to physically handle him
during a seizure, adjust scheduling so he is
not left alone, and emotionally for feeling

Instead of waddling in the feeling of helplessness
Tara Gibson along with her other half, Jamaal
Kennedy BKA MellyRow Stacks of Diverse
Gravity have decided to utilize their connections
and influence within the music, media and
entertainment industry to bring the community
together to spread more awareness for Epilepsy,
educate the public and to raise proceeds that
will go towards research, prevention and treating
the condition. Although this event was inspired
by her experience raising a son burned with
the ailment, Tara knows that there are millions of
Americans faced with the struggles of epilepsy daily
rather it be through caring for a loved one, or
having the condition themselves. Seize the Cure
is an event that will help.

The event will be held on Sunday, May 21st.
Doors open at 1pm and the event will start
promptly at 2:00 PM. There is a $20 required
donation to attend this special event.

Seize The cure will be held at the Peace December
Headquarters at 2006 Westchester Ave., Bronx, NY
