November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month and the Epilepsy Foundation is asking everyone to Get Seizure Smart.
Some of you may know that my family has been impacted by epilepsy for several generations. It seems that the severity of Epilepsy has increased with every new family member diagnosed with this disease. This is a silent disease that can be very dibilitating if not treated.
Please help me and the National Epilespy Foundation spread information to help educate the general public.
There is a "30 Days 30 Ways" campaign for the month of November. We are mid way through but there is still time to pitch in, just pick one of the items below to do and you can help!
