Epilepsy Services Foundation, Inc.
August 13, 2012

This charity is amazing! As the mother of a teenager recently diagnosed wiith Epilepsy, which was the result of a head injury sustained while wrestling around with friends, I decided that I wanted to become involved with anything to help raise awareness and funding for Epilespy. I volunteered for an event, an Epilepsy fundraising race, and instantly felt like one of the family. Everyone was very welcoming, and each had their own stories of how Epilespy has touched their lives. Epilepsy Services Foundation has opened my family's eyes to resources available to us in the community and support groups that we were previously unaware of. They even told us about a camp specifically for children with Epilepsy, Camp Boggy Creek, which my daughter attended in July, and she had a blast!!! For the first time since her head injury, she was able to relax and not be afraid of her seizures. Epilepsy Services Foundation has really helped my daughter to see that she is not alone, that there is help for her, and that people really do care and want to help find a cure for her and others dealing with Epilepsy.

The Great!

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