EPILEPSY FOUNDATION OF MINNESOTA INC
July 30, 2010

In 2003 I suffered a aseizure at age 30. One year later I had another and was diganosed with Epilepsy. Around this time my little girl was having 50 to 100 seizures per day. I knew I wanted to be her voice. So I went to EFMN to get more info and to give back. Thru EFMN's many programs like the Stroll for Epilepsy or Family Fun events we have met people who have gone thru the same thing. And being a Volunteer Educator has allowed me to give back. It has allowed me to break the myths about epilpesy and teach other on the proper techinques about seizure responses. More importantly EFMN has allowed me to be a voice for my little girl.

The Great!

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

A Day at the Capital, Shining Star program, Light up the night event, creating inspiring videos for them.

Ways to make it better...

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

have more funds for EFMN. So they can hire more staff to supports the many cutting edge ideas that come their way.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Being able to educate people about epilepsy.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

awesome and continue to be awesome. They care about every person that makes contact with them

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Be a leader in the non-profit community. Hire more staff. Creating a podcast show or a cable access show.

Ways to make it better...

There was more staff to support all the ideas...

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The economic times we live in and people not truly understanding epilepsy

One thing I'd also say is that...

There is no foundation in the country that works harder than them.
