Cupcake Drive To Raise Money For Epilepsy Research

Local company CareFusion is hosting a cupcake-selling fundraiser with the proceeds going toward seizure research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

CareFusion has made medical devices for people who suffer from epilepsy for more than 50 years.

One of those devices included the EEG, which helps doctors see electrical activity generated by the brain and often helps to diagnose seizures.

"By stimulating the brain, we can find the functional areas like speech, or motor activity or sensory areas. Essentially, they want to stay away from those when they do the surgeries," said Dan Strelow, a CareFusion clinical specialist.

CareFusion is organizing a "brain lane" fundraiser at its offices to sell cupcakes and raise money.

People can drive through and pick up a cupcake and coffee for $5 at the CareFusion building on Deming Way in Middleton. The drive is on Friday, March 25 from 7 to 11 a.m.

All money will go toward epilepsy research.
