The Epilepsy Foundation has been doing regular pick ups for us for about five years now. They have always come the day they commit to and the workers doing the pick ups have been really nice overall. We've had a great experience so far. A couple of times, I have called to check and make sure that they were coming that day for a pick up, and they were very nice about it, and the pick up was done that day. We will continue to donate to them!

I have been involved with the Epilepsy Foundation for 7 years. The first year I was a client who was discriminated from a previous employer, and was eventually terminated. I was then introduced to the Epilepsy Foundation from my Neurologist who suggested that they could possibly help me out. The Staff at the Epilepsy Foundation was very understanding and very helpful with my situation. They have guided me through some very tough situations in pursuing my litigation with my previous employer, and with there assistance, guidance, and support for a year I finally won my litigation. I would also like to extend a big Thank You to the Staff and especially Client Services ( Mary Jo, and Meredith) for all your support and understanding.
