B&B's Hunter Tylo Raises Awareness About Epilepsy

Many of you remember the tragic death of Hunter Tylo's (Taylor, The Bold and the Beautiful) son Mickey last October. An epileptic, he drowned after suffering a seizure and falling into the family's pool. He would have celebrated his 20th birthday this past April 24th.

Tylo has joined forces with the newly organized American Epilepsy Outreach Foundation (AEOF) to raise awareness about this neurological disorder that affects more than 3 million people in the United States.

Tylo partnered with the AEOF in memory of her son Mickey. Through its website, the AEOF offers information on detecting and treating seizure disorders, first-aid information for someone experiencing a seizure, links to a variety of related resources and an outlet to share personal stories. The organization also distributes first-aid information to schools and other public venues.

Tylo and the founders of AEOF hope to raise $20,000 this month to help support its programs. To make a donation, please visit
