Date:2/4/2009

TITUSVILLE, N.J., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Several big names in professional football and television will descend upon the nation's Capitol on Saturday, March 28 for the Third Annual National Walk for Epilepsy. New York Jets offensive lineman and eight-time Pro Bowler, Alan Faneca, and Atlanta Falcons running back Jason Snelling, both diagnosed with epilepsy as teenagers, will be leading their own teams of friends, relatives and fans. Together they help demonstrate that people with this neurological condition can break through barriers and achieve their dreams. The event, hosted by the Epilepsy Foundation, with financial support from Ortho-McNeil Neurologics(R), Division of Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc, is designed to bring awareness to epilepsy and raise funds that will create much needed programs for people with epilepsy and help in the search for a cure.

Anabelle's seizures are a result of a congenital condition, which she was diagnosed with at age one. Alan and his wife Julie have become leaders in the epilepsy community, sharing their personal story with the public, fundraising for the cause and lobbying for legislation to ensure that families get much needed respite care.
