For those of you that don’t know, November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month! And in honor of that I have decided to create my own heroes page on the foundation’s website, where anyone can donate money through my page. Now don’t worry, this money is not going to me. All proceeds go directly to the Epilepsy Foundation towards support groups for patients and their families, and to research about the disorder. The donation process is super easy and ANY little bit counts (cliche I know but it’s totally true)!
While I know it is not possible for everyone to donate, and if you can’t or wouldn’t like to spend any money, it would mean a lot to me (and many others) if you would just take a second to look at my page or explore their website for a few minutes.
One of the most common questions I am asked about my epilepsy is “what do I do if you have a seizure in front of me?”. The site explains everything for all types of seizures and can hopefully help you assist someone if you ever see one in the future.
I am super pumped for all the donations I’ve already helped contribute, and hope to only contribute more.
But above that, I really just hope to spread the awareness of the disorder because it is something I struggled with for a while and I know many continue to struggle with today.
Please, please, PLEASE just take a minute or so to check out the page.
