Whether it be someone with epilepsy, the parent of a child with epilepsy, the child with a parent who has epilepsy, a friend, loved one – you are not alone in this.

Words of Encouragement

EFGA wants you to know you are not alone. Epilepsy is more common than most people realize and it is our mission to increase awareness for epilepsy and seizure disorders, erase the stigmas and provide an outlet for those who are effected.
