Epilepsy is a neurological condition affecting over 65 million men, women and children worldwide. Anyone at any time for a multitude of reasons can be diagnosed with this condition and we must do all in our power to raise awareness, educate the world and break down the stigma surrounding this condition still to this very day. We must ban together to find a cure to put an end to epilepsy. There is strength in numbers.

The more that is known, the less power epilepsy has.
