We don’t raise funds for EPILEPSY. We raise funds to END EPILEPSY. The more successful we are, together, in this fight the sooner we will END EPILEPSY. That’s a good reason to be out of business.
With your support, we fight to END EPILEPSY by funding specialty epilepsy care, research and the training of specialists; advocating for more epilepsy research funding; bringing information, supportive care and advances to families living with epilepsy; educating school personnel about epilepsy; educating to prevent head trauma and seizures and improve safety with our Big Brain exhibit; and training about seizure first aid.
But we need you to succeed in this fight! You and your story help raise awareness and funding. Everyone is needed in the fight to END EPILEPSY. That includes you.
You and your story matter in this fight. When you get involved and share your story you are increasing awareness about epilepsy and inspiring others to join and support the fight. There are many ways to get involved – support our flagship events, create your own do-it-yourself #F2EE event, donate in honor or memory of a loved one, volunteer, advocate — while always telling your story.
As more people join, more money and resources will be given to support the fight and that means more doctors and researchers can devote their lives to epilepsy care and research. That will bring us closer to END EPILEPSY.
“The bravest person I know” is the most commonly heard description of someone epilepsy. So it makes sense that we feature stories about the brave people with epilepsy whom we meet every day. They are our heroes. They are our inspiration and partners in the fight to END EPILEPSY.
Join an existing event or create your own F2EE event to raise funds and awareness for the fight to END EPILEPSY. Only then will Sam get the care he desperately needs and more. To learn more about Sam, watch the video and get involved!
