Clayton Feig was an amazing young man, who loved computers and playing tennis. Diagnosed with epilepsy at a young age and managing seizures for much of his life, Clayton faced several challenges, but he never allowed the disease to define him. He was a kind, courageous, high-character son, brother, and friend to all during his life. Tragically, Clayton passed away in July 1993 from epilepsy complications. He was just 18 years old.
After his passing, the Feig Family worked with Epilepsy Alliance Florida to establish the Clayton Feig Legacy Fund. The fund supports a number of programs and services for youths that are living with epilepsy. Each year the Epilepsy Alliance Florida selects one youth in each of its regions to receive the Clayton Feig Youth Award at our annual Walk the Talk events. The award recognizes the bravery of youths battling seizures, while also highlighting the important work of individuals dedicated to removing the stigma and misunderstandings associated with epilepsy.
