November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month.
Epilepsy, which affects between two and three million people in the United States, is characterized by recurrent, unprovoked seizures.
Today, Friday, 11/11/11, my employer is accepting donations for the Epilepsy Foundation as our ‘jeans day’ fund raiser. This foundation works to ensure that people with seizures are able to participate in all life experiences; to improve how people with epilepsy are perceived, accepted and valued in society; and to promote research for a cure. The Epilepsy Foundation is funded primarily through individual donations from the general public and receives restricted grant support from the federal government, foundations and private industry.
Please join me in in supporting this charity, to help raise awareness and support those afflicted with epilepsy.
