Review for Epilepsy Services Foundation, Inc., Tampa, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I recently got involved with the Epilepsy Services Foundation to help fight for those living with this condition. My best friend's sweet little boy, Jake from Texas, was diagnosed with Epilepsy when he was 3. From that moment on I set out to find a way for me to be involved and to learn more. I knew the moment I met Tom Orth it was calling my name. The genuine passion, care and concern for the Epilepsy community is apparent in every little thing the foundation does. Sending kids to camp, spreading awareness, providing scholarships to those entering the neurological field, doctor referrals, mentoring programs, a wealth of knowledge, and so much more...It's quite eye-opening as to what it truly means to give passionately. I am so fortunate to volunteer and be a part of such a great foundation.

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

many ways. The mentoring program has really helped strengthen my knowledge of the subject. It has helped me feel confident when talking to people and making people aware. I was lucky to be in charge of the Purple Day walk for Epilepsy in Seminole, FL...what a great feeling to walk with those living with Epilepsy and to be there for them as a resource and friend.

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

shout what we do from the ROOFTOPS!!! The more people that know about Epilepsy..the better! Talk about it, educate people and HELP people face this topic, rather than avoid it! It knows no boundaries and is more prevalent than anyone knows! WE have got to get more research and awareness going...

Role:  Volunteer & Volunteered for the Hare Racing Experience, expanded the Purple Day walk for Epilepsy to Lake Seminole, participated in a mentoring program.
