SPOTLIGHT ON EPILEPSY HEROES AND FAMILIES 

We wish to highlight the many epilepsy families who were part of the awareness and fundraising efforts this fall.
 
Our great hero Elizabeth (on the left in purple with a friend) is a very impressive young woman with a great future, despite her uncontrolled epilepsy. Missy and Nicole Terry (right) both helped with the bike ride.
The well known inventor of Hoops for Epilepsy with her entire family (right), as well as Justice Bartley (left), who speaks about his epilepsy.

Amanda Stacks (left) is presently giving a creative writing course for epilepsy heroes. She and the Smith family (right) are great supporters.

Two epilepsy mothers, Gina (left) and Tina (right), have worked tirelessly for epilepsy awareness. 

All these great people have a good amount of wisdom about epilepsy and we enjoy talking to them on how they manage epilepsy in their lives.
