What’s Import to Know During National Epilepsy Month

passed out employee

Let’s make a difference this National Epilepsy Month.

November is National Epilepsy Month, a month that promotes education and awareness of this seizure disorder.  A major goal of this month is to encourage us to have a better understanding of what epilepsy is and to perhaps make a difference in the lives of those who have been diagnosed with epilepsy.  In honor of this month, here are some things that we can do to participate in National Epilepsy Month.

The Epilepsy Foundation offers many suggestions for our involvement.  Suggestions include that the Foundation encourages us to Speak Up and Speak Out about epilepsy by contacting our local Congressional representatives.  We can also spread the word by posting about National Epilepsy Month on social media.

The Epilepsy Foundation also offers a range of resources to explore, including the following:

Epilepsy is the fourth most common neurological disorder and affects people of all ages.

Epilepsy means the same thing as “seizure disorders.”

Epilepsy is characterized by unpredictable seizures and can cause other health problems.

Epilepsy is a spectrum condition with a wide range of seizure types and control varying from person-to-person.

Public misunderstandings of epilepsy cause challenges that are often worse than the seizures.

Finally, we can make a difference by making a donation through the Epilepsy Foundation.  When we donate, we can feel good knowing that our money is going to a worthwhile cause.  The Foundation uses donations to fund nationwide programs to improve epilepsy care, disseminate important epilepsy information and education materials, advocate for rights, and support research.  We can make a direct donation HERE.

We at The Maria Sanchez Show hope you will join us as we show our support this National Epilepsy Month.   Don’t forget to check out our latest program, Shadow Politics with Senator Michael D. Brown.   Tune in on Sundays at 4:00 p.m. PDT/7:00 p.m. EDT.
