  • We recently contacted JoshProvides in hopes of acquiring assistance in purchasing an Emfit seizure monitor for our almost two year old daughter, Rachel, and were both thrilled and relieved when we heard the good news! Thanks to the generosity of JoshProvides, we will undoubtedly enjoy a better night’s sleep knowing that Rachel is being monitored and that we will be alerted if need be. Thank you for the comfort, support, and hope you provide for individuals and families who are affected by epilepsy. You are a blessing to many and we are eternally grateful for the gift you have given us. With thanks,
    Katie, Mike, and Rachel
  • We can't thank everyone at JoshProvides enough for the help with getting an Emfit seizure monitor for our son Wyatt. Wyatt started having infantile spasms and then complex partial seizures. He was diagnosed with Tuberous Sclerosis and epilepsy. Sleep is his main trigger and he wakes up constantly throughout the night. This is going to help us relax a little at night and be able to be alerted when we need to be. Right now I stay up late watching Wyatt to make sure I catch whatever seizures I can and to help calm him down. Our hearts go out to everyone who deals and has dealt with epilepsy. Thank you so much again!!  
    Kelsey, Justin, JJ and Wyatt!
  • I am so grateful JoshProvides was able to help us obtain an Emfit seizure monitor for our two-year-old son. Connor suffers seizures due to tuberous sclerosis complex and they often occur upon waking. He started having seizures the day he was born and his first 37 days of life were spent in the NICU trying to get them under control. At four months, he had brain surgery. While the surgery helped reduce his complex-partials, a month later he was diagnosed with infantile spasms. We fought those off, only to have other types start. He still has seizure activity to this day, despite medication and the modified Atkins diet. JoshProvides was so quick to respond and we received the monitor within a week. Having the Emfit monitor will help us sleep a little better at night and give him more independence. We are extremely grateful to JoshProvides for the added peace of mind. Sincerely, Connor, Becky and Chris
