I’m Geoff and I joined the Epilepsy Foundation because of my sister, Allison. She had her first seizure when she was just six years old. Now, 30 years later after every intervention available she still has up to 40 seizures every day. Our family found hope and community through more than 20 years of involvement with the Epilepsy Foundation. Your donation has an impact for Allison, for my family, and all those living with epilepsy. From our family to yours, thank you for your support.
