Start a Conversation About Epilepsy and Seizures

“More than 3.4 million people in the U.S. and 65 million around the world have epilepsy. It is more common that Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, autism, and cerebral palsy combined!

A third of the people with epilepsy live with uncontrolled seizures because no available treatment works for them. Many more live with serious side effects from their medication as the price of seizure control.

Fear and misunderstanding still surround this chronic neurological condition making many people reluctant to talk about it. That reluctance leads to lives lived in the shadows, discrimination in workplaces and communities, and a lack of funding for new therapies research.

Whether you have epilepsy or know someone who does, you can be part of ending the fear and misunderstanding that surrounds seizures by talking about it.”
