This group and its "independent incorporated affiliate" called Epilepsy Chicago or Friends of Epilepsy Foundation of Chicago have relentlessly harassed me and apparently thousands of others by making repeated phone calls, day and night, weekdays and weekends - Sunday night at 9:30! - and when asked to stop, first say that they are a non-profit and don't have to stop harassing phone calls - and then hang up. I have received dozens and dozens of phone calls from 630 812 2460 all identified as "Epilepsy Chicago" and they refuse to stop. Google the number and see the endless lists of complaints. No one should contribute to an organization that spends its money on phone banks endlessly calling non responsive non-donors. Poorly managed, totally indifferent to their effect on the general public.

Ways to make it better...

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

put it and their phone bank out of business.

I became aware and then quite familiar with the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago because of my daughter who has Epilepsy. She has volunteered there the past few years and they have been so welcomingly to her that it has impressed me to no end. From the moment I met everyone as well, they have made me feel right at home. Most important, they truly care about making everyone who has Epilepsy feel they can accomplish anything. Such a dedicated, awesome and caring group of people. Camp Blackhawk for kids is so rewarding-I get chills looking at how much fun the kids are having. They will bend overbackwards for all families and this is what makes the foundation a top notch group-we must find a cure!
