Epilepsy knows no boundaries. It doesn’t care about your race, your religion, your gender, your age, or your zip code.
Seizures can strike at anytime, anywhere.
We’re using our brains to END EPILEPSY and the challenges of epilepsy.


We are the
Epilepsy Foundation

We exist to END EPILEPSY. That means increasing awareness and changing the conversation around epilepsy, improving and saving lives through care, advocacy, research and new therapies, and education, and mobilizing everyone to take action.

Our purpose is to ensure ...

  • Everyone knows about epilepsy and seizure first aid.
  • People with epilepsy can access specialty care faster and gain greater seizure control, and they and their families can benefit from supportive care.
  • People with epilepsy can live full lives in their communities.
  • People with epilepsy don't die early or suffer injuries.
  • People with epilepsy can benefit from research and new therapies.
  • Everyone can participate with us in the fight to END EPILEPSY.

Stories of Our Ambassadors
and people like you

The stories of people with epilepsy help to inspire, motivate and comfort others in the fight to END EPILEPSY. The epilepsies are a complex spectrum of brain disorders and diseases that are best understood through the personal stories of people affected by epilepsy and their families. The stories of 13 ambassadors were at the core of our Let’s Use Our Brains to END EPILEPSY campaign. The trials and triumphs of all people with epilepsy fuel and inspire the fight to END EPILEPSY.
