My Epilepsy Hero

Heroes at the 2017 National Walk for Epilepsy

At the 2017 National Walk for Epilepsy, we asked people, “Who’s your epilepsy hero? Who inspires you in your epilepsy journey? Is it a family member? A health care provider? A mentor or friend?”

Here’s what some of them said.

Holly's hero is her son.

John and Karen talk about their son who is their hero.

Christian's hero is his dad.

2016 National Epilepsy Awareness Month

In honor of 2016 National Epilepsy Awareness Month, we are pleased to partner with Sunovion and Star Trek and Star Wars actor and advocate Greg Grunberg to recognize the people who have made a positive difference in the lives of those living with epilepsy.

The social media campaign #MyEpilepsyHero gives people impacted by epilepsy the chance to recognize someone who has provided support or inspiration in their epilepsy journey. An epilepsy hero can be anyone – a family member, health care provider, mentor, or friend.

From November 1 until December 16, 2016, post a video or photograph of an epilepsy hero using the hashtag #MyEpilepsyHero on Facebook or Twitter. When you help us reach our goal of 500 hero posts, Sunovion will donate $10,000 to the Epilepsy Foundation.
