A little about Lou Bird

Founded by Margaret and Chris Chase after their daughter, Larkin, was diagnosed with epilepsy. Lou Bird stems from Larkin’s nickname. Her siblings affectionately call her, ‘Lou,’ and she was born two weeks early, deeming her the family’s early bird. After Larkin’s diagnosis, she was given medication and sent home. The severity of the disorder did not sink in until they began their own research and found out how common, yet unknown epilepsy is.
