We've been reporting on the #AJO movement for weeks, but now, it's made national news.
is featuring the story of Alyssa Josephine O'Neill, who passed away suddenly after an epileptic seizure on September 4.
To keep her memory alive, Alyssa's parents, Jason and Sarah O'Neill, began the Pay It Forward movement, buying Starbucks lattes for strangers. That quickly spread worldwide with thousands of people following the lead of the O'Neills.
Since Alyssa's death, a fund has been set up with the Erie Community Foundation to help families dealing with epilepsy, and also a nursing scholarship, since that's what she was going to school for.
Sarah said she's proud that her daughter is leaving this legacy. She said epilepsy doesn't receive enough attention, and she's happy that this movement is bringing more awareness.
