Richie Shane started having seizures soon after he finished college. After over 3000 seizures and unsuccessfully trying to control them through medication, he underwent 2 surgeries and has been completely cured. His quality of life has been significantly improved and he embraces this opportunity to live his life to the fullest.

Richie’s surgeries were performed by Dr. Werner Doyle, at New York University Hospital. His epileptologist is Dr. Orrin Devinsky.

Phil and Richie are planning to sail together in New York later in 2021. They are also putting together an event to raise awareness of epilepsy and funds for epilepsy research.
