November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month!
The Epilepsy Foundation is an unwavering ally in raising awareness, providing support, and funding research to bring new treatments and therapies to market in a timeframe that matters for people with seizures.
People living with epilepsy, their families and their caregivers are served by our network of 47 Epilepsy Foundation affiliates around the country. Local Foundation affiliates provide information and referral assistance; maintain individual and family support services; serve as advocates for the rights of those with epilepsy; and offer community-based education to employers, emergency first-responders, school nurses, and other allied health professionals. Find your local Epilepsy Foundation here.
In honor of the 2013 National Epilepsy Awareness Month, we are pleased to present "Story Days." We asked our affiliate network to share some of the stories of the people they have helped. In November, we are featuring these videos here and on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/EpilepsyFoundationOfAmerica. Comment and show your support!
Come back and re-watch our videos in our "Story Days Archive."
We hope you will join the campaign by submitting a 30 to 60 second video telling the story of how you found support through your local Epilepsy Foundation. Submit your video here. Then watch as the library of your videos grows.
Epilepsy is challenging. You can find hope, connection, and support at your local Epilepsy Foundation.
