Reviews for Epilepsy Association Of Central Florida Inc

As a person with Epilepsy, I wanted to get involved with a cause for awhile that helps people with Epilepsy. In March, one of the bands I play in threw a fundraiser party to benefit the Epilepsy Association of Central Florida (we try to do at least one per quarter, but this is the closest to my heart). Chuck attended and while we were able to raise some awareness, a few hundred dollars, I learned that EACF is one of the oldest and largest Epilepsy Organizations in the country. They provide medical help like doctors visits and medication to those who can't afford it. They do what I want to do, which is educate and inform the public about epilepsy.

Since our daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy we reached out to find others going through what we were. The Epilepsy Association of Central Florida welcomed us and introduced us to families with children living with epilepsy. We love participating in their fundraisers and helping spread awareness. The EACF is commited to providing services, care, assistance with medications for people living in Central Florida with Epilepsy. We consider them our family.

Assistance in obtaining extremely costly medication to controll this disorder. First and foremost in educating people and helping them have a better understanding of this illnesse.

The Epilepsy Association of Central Florida is an amazing organization that truly makes its mission the focal point of everything it does. I have had the good fortune of getting to know the leadership, board, staff, and volunteers from this nonprofit, and all of them have been passionate about doing whatever they can to help improve the quality of life for people who suffer from epilepsy. I have been most impressed with the "can do" culture of this organization that leverages its smart thinking and sound planning to take quick action that makes a difference in the lives of others. I have worked with many nonprofit organizations throughout Florida over the course of many years, and I can honestly say that Epilepsy Association of Central Florida is one of my favorites!

Chuck Carmen has taken the Epilepsy Association of Central Florida to new heights as he is a very active community figure making sure that this non-profit is on the radar! The countless stories of families that this organization has helped is growing. He is constantly doing outreach and bringing the community leaders together of business and government to know more about the Epilepsy Association of Central Florida.

Hats off to this organization and all that it does to help those struggling with Epilepsy!

This organization is truly dedicated to epilepsy patients and their families. Over the years, they have helped with medications, office visits, EEG's and blood tests. Their fund raisers are outstanding and the proceeds go directly to assisting these patients. Thanks for all your dedication!!

The medical care associated with this organization is top notch. EEG's are done in the facility, referrals are made to excellent physicians in the community and the best medical advice is available. I thank them for their involvement with all the epilepsy patients, the schools and the community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their fund raising walk, it is exceptional.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do whatever I could to help expand their services to all in need.
