Our mission 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.

We connect people to treatment, support and resources; lead advocacy efforts and fight discrimination; fund innovative research and the training of specialists; and educate the public about epilepsy and seizure first aid.

 

About the Event

"END EPILEPSY Live!" will be hosted by Epilepsy Foundation spokesperson and actor Greg Grunberg ("Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker," "A Star is Born," and "Star Trek Beyond"). Greg's son is living with epilepsy. Ending epilepsy, and the challenges that come with it, is personal for Greg, and it's what motivated him to start "Talk About It!" On November 9, he is gathering his celebrity friends, great bands and other special guests to create a fun, fundraising, live stream event where you will also learn about epilepsy and seizures.

About Epilepsy

According to the World Health Organization, epilepsy is the most common serious brain disorder worldwide with no age, racial, social class, national or geographic boundaries. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) estimates that 3.4 million people in the United States are affected by epilepsy. It is the underlying tendency of the brain to produce seizures which are sudden abnormal bursts of electrical energy that disrupt brain functions.

About the Epilepsy Foundation

With a network of nearly 50 partners throughout the United States, the Epilepsy Foundation is leading the fight to END EPILEPSY. For more than five decades, the Epilepsy Foundation has shone a light on epilepsy to promote awareness and understanding, and to advocate for laws that matter to people with epilepsy, while also funding $68.7 million for epilepsy research and supporting 3,091 epilepsy investigators and specialists in their early careers. Over the past 18 years, in partnership with the CDC, the Epilepsy Foundation has helped to improve access to care for people with epilepsy, expanded its digital reach and online resources in homes across the country, and trained more than 500,000 school and community personnel in how to recognize seizures and administer seizure first aid. The Foundation has also assisted more than 123,470 people through its 24/7 Helpline in the past five years, and continues to focus on innovation, new therapies, community services, advocacy and education as key priorities.
