As school begins again for children, kids with epilepsy are worrying about more than just new teachers and classrooms. Many families are afraid of the unpredictability that seizures cause, and if it will keep other kids from being their friend or impact a successful school year. They fear teachers may not know what to do if they have a seizure, they hope there will be after school activities they can participate in, especially if their seizures can’t be controlled with medication. Simply put, having epilepsy makes being a kid complicated!


With your ongoing support, you can ensure that parents and children have the resources they need to overcome the fear they may feel at school, while facing the challenges of epilepsy. With this in mind we are launching our back to school campaign and hope you will help us to reach our goal of $500.00 the
