About the Author

Evan Moss is a 7-year-old boy who has Tuberous Sclerosis and Epilepsy. He began having seizures in his first month of life and by the time he was 4 years old, he was having 300-400 seizures a month. At this young age he underwent brain surgery to control his Epilepsy and he left the hospital seizure-free. He had freedom from seizures for almost 2 years and is now experiencing them again, although less frequently. Evan has 3-4 seizures a month, but because they last several minutes, medical intervention is always necessary to stop his seizures. Evan and his family are very excited about having a seizure dog and believe this new member of the family will keep Evan safe by making sure his parents know when he is having a seizure as well as provide greater independence for Evan.

What a great way to teach children about problems and how they can be overcome.

Dear Evan, I admire your determination in getting your dog and I know your dream will come true.
Kari Harless
He begged me to buy it (we were reading someone else's copy), so that is what I'm doing!

"It was amazing, this outpouring from the community to support Evan. People waited outside in a line that stretched 100 yards at points in the heat with nothing but smiles and great energy." -- Bob Kohm, family friend

Our young hero, Evan Moss is a 7-year-old boy who has Tuberous Sclerosis and Epilepsy. "My Seizure Dog," the book he has written and illustrated in his innocent, but persistent effort to acquire this companion dog motivated by his personal experience of suffering. The young courageous Evan, tells the sweet sour story of what he looks forward to in a caring friendship with his new pet sharing his suffering. Evan's family has shown wisdom to support his book project, to seek such effective healing means to help Evan focus on alleviating his own pain. A seizure can erupt suddenly, triggered by an abnormal neurological activity, like an electrical storm in the brain. What could be aggravating for a young kid is that seizures are always accompanied by loss of consciousness, that may last for several minutes, and in the worst cases, hours. In dogs, as in humans, seizures can be similar in many ways and may be harsh for the dog, while the pets owner is left in daunting dismay.

His story and drawings will surely inspire the readers who will be enthusiastic not only to support Evan but also to join his noble and earnest attempt to acquire and befreind a caring seizure dog. The new family member will keep Evan in caring 'paws', and he may grow up to be a great veterinarian. People drove from as far as New Jersey to Alexandria, Virginia Sunday to meet young Evan Moss and buy his book. It was reported that Some people even brought their seizure dogs, which cheered Evan up, his mother Lisa Moss said.

Evan Moss is a 7 year old boy with a serious seizure disorder. He wrote this wonderful book to help earn the $13,000 that he and his parents will need to contribute in order to get a seizure dog for him. Evan's portion of the writing is about the relationship he envisions having with his dog. It is warm, and sweet, and real. His drawings are charming. There is also just enough hard information about seizures for people reading this book to understand why the addition of a seizure dog to this family's life would change things very much for the better.
I give a lot of credit to Evan, for wanting to contribute his talents to make his dream come true, and to his parents, for helping him to try and find an efficient and effective way to do so.
I cam across the story of this book in Publishers' Weekly's Twitter Feed last week; they linked to an article in the Washington Post about a book signing Evan was doing last Sunday.[ ... ]
I promptly retweeted and posted to my FB page, and also emailed the story to my address list. I would really like to see Evan get his dog; it's important to get the word out about this amazing young man and his family.
Good work on the book, Evan; I hope that you write many more as you grow older. Most important, I hope you get your dog, really really soon.
As for me, I'm contributing my copy to my local library so that other kids can learn not only about seizure dogs, but how a kid just like them can solve a really big problem with creativity and hard work.

I bought this to help the author get his seizure dog. This boy has had it rough with the amount of seizures he has endured already in his young life. If you can I suggest you also buy it & help him also.

This book is written and illustrated by a 7-year-old who suffers from repeated seizures. He has hopes of getting a real seizure dog some day and has written this book to describe his life with the dog. My own 7-year-old read the book and enjoyed it. He begged me to buy it (we were reading someone else's copy), so that is what I'm doing! I will be very happy to have this little book in my library and to support this young man's cause. I hope he gets a dog!

A great book! My son, who is also epileptic, loves the book! It is a great way to teach children about epilepsy, service dogs, and what you can accomplish in life. An author at 7 years old raising money to purchase his service dog has now raised enough money to purchase service dogs for others as well.

I love this little book. I purchased it after reading about Evan Moss in our local paper. The reason he wrote the book (to be able to afford his own seizure dog) is the reason I purchased it. To help a 7 year old boy achieve his goal. It is well written and nicely illustrated :) Way to go Evan!
