Hi my name is Kimberly im 18

Hi my name is Kimberly im 18 as well, though i have had epilepsy since I was about six years old. It can be a surprising and scary thing for everyone I actually am still scared of it. I know the feeling of discomfort and being alone it's a very difficult thing to deal with. But if you would like someone to talk to I'm always up for it and open to it!

Our Mission

The mission of the Epilepsy Foundation is to lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives.
