End Epilepsy Vignettes

We can’t

sugar-coat it.
This fight needs
everyone…

 

END EPILEPSY is our vision and our call to action.

We don’t raise funds for EPILEPSY. We raise funds to END EPILEPSY. The more successful we are, together, in this fight, the sooner we will END EPILEPSY. That’s a good reason to be out of business.

What WE do in this fight

With your support, we fight to END EPILEPSY by funding specialty epilepsy care, research and the training of specialists; advocating for more epilepsy research funding; bringing information, supportive care and advances to families living with epilepsy; educating school personnel about epilepsy; educating to prevent head trauma and seizures and improve safety with our Big Brain exhibit; and training about seizure first aid.

But we need you to succeed in this fight! You and your story help raise awareness and funding. Everyone is needed in the fight to END EPILEPSY. That includes you.

 
This fight needs YOU and your story

You and your story matter in this fight. When you get involved and share your story you are increasing awareness about epilepsy and inspiring others to join and support the fight. There are many ways to get involved –– support our flagship events, create your own do-it-yourself #F2EE event, donate in honor or memory of a loved one, volunteer, advocate — while always “telling your story.”

As more people join, more money and resources will be given to support the fight and that means more doctors and researchers can devote their lives to epilepsy care and research. That will bring us closer to END EPILEPSY.

 

Our nationwide mission is to stop seizures and death in epilepsy, find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy… The Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Los Angeles fulfills this mission by leading the fight to END EPILEPSY.

federal research dollars per patient than each of these.
