We all hear Harrison Ford’s name and the first thing that comes to mind is STAR WARS and Han Solo.  Everyone knows him as a hero on the big screen.  His family, especially his daughter, love him more than just a hero.  Harrison Ford’s daughter has epilepsy.  He just revealed this about her, but has been giving to NYU Langone Center.  Harrison Ford is the director of the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center.

Georgia, Harrison Ford’s daughter, had multiple seizures before being diagnosed by Dr. Orrin Devinsky.  Finally being diagnosed was a blessing after being scared many times with seizures.  Harrison Ford told the New York daily News,  “When you have a loved oStar-Wars-Han-Solo-Jacket-900x900ne who suffers from this disease, it can be devastating.  You know how it affects their lives, their future, their opportunities and you want desperately to find mitigation.  You want to find a way that they can live a comfortable and effective life.”

To help raise money for epilepsy and NYU Langone Center and FACES (Finding A Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures), Harrison Ford will be giving the jacket he wore as Han Solo in Star Wars:The Force Awakens to be auctioned off to the highest bidder.  The bidding started at $18,000 on IfOnly. (https://www.ifonly.com/entertainment/product/7076/iconic-star-wars-memorabilia-han-solo-leather-jacket-autographed-by-harrison-ford).  It is now at $61,000 with 6 days left to bid for the jacket.

A true hero off the screen raising money and awareness for EPILEPSY.
