Mission Statement

The Epilepsy Foundation leads the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy.

Special Concerns:

Seniors: The fastest growing group for the onset of seizures is people over 65.

Children: Many children have brief episodes that aren't recognized as seizures until they become convulsive.

Military/Veterans: A significant percentage of those experiencing traumatic brain injuries will develop epilepsy.
