Live Life Boldy!
You're Not on This Journey Alone, We're Here to Help!
The Epilepsy Foundation's mission is to lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives.
Epilepsy is a central nervous system disorder (neurological disorder) in which the nerve cell activity in your brain is disturbed, causing a seizure during which you experience abnormal behavior, symptoms and sensations, including loss of consciousness.
Although there has yet to be a cure for epilepsy, we can strive to ensure that “not another moment is lost to seizures.” People living with epilepsy can manage their seizures and improve how they are perceived, accepted and valued in society.
The CDC has updated information about people who may be at greater risk than others from COVID-19. People with epilepsy AND other medical conditions may be at greater risk of developing more severe illness if they are exposed to COVID-19. At this time, it is not clear if people with epilepsy who do not have other underlying conditions are at higher risk.
