I was diagnosed with epilepsy at age four. I have had brain surgery and laser ablation surgery it did decrease the frequency of my seizures but I still get seizures. I’m on multiple anti-seizure medications.In addition, I receive a lot of support and encouragement from my family and friends and they help me through the bad days. Furthermore, having epilepsy puts added stress on my family especially my mom, with the randomness of epilepsy and unforeseen injuries that I may get during a seizure. There are more than three million people in the United States that have epilepsy and 65 million people worldwide that have epilepsy. Approximately, 1 in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy sometime in their lifetime. Epilepsy has been overlooked and underfunded for years. The more funding epilepsy receives the more research can be done and hopefully a cure can be found. Every seizure that I have just makes me stronger and more passionate about epilepsy awareness and finding a cure. Donations of any amount would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
