Our Mission

The mission of the Epilepsy Foundation 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.

For 50 years we have been working for and alongside people with epilepsy and our commitment to them and their families is stronger than ever. And you can be assured of that because our mission remains the same and our volunteer leadership is made up of people who have epilepsy and who love someone with epilepsy.

While we are proud of our accomplishments and current priorities, we know there is so much more to be done. Together, we must pursue End Epilepsy on behalf of each individual affected and on behalf of our community as a whole.

Together with you — your stories, action and walk to raise awareness and resources — we will do better. People with epilepsy will do better.

That’s why we’re taking the Walk to End Epilepsy bi-coastal and in between.
