Raise awareness of epilepsy disorder

Published 8:54 am Tuesday, November 23, 2010

More than 3 million Americans have epilepsy or a seizure disorder. November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month, and I am one of thousands of volunteers working to raise awareness of this terrible condition.

Epilepsy is common, but many people know little about it or what to do when someone is having a seizure. That’s why the Epilepsy Foundation is asking everyone to take the Get Seizure Smart! quiz in November.

A copy of the quiz is available at www.GetSeizureSmart.org. As someone affected by epilepsy, I strongly encourage everyone to take the quiz. My life, or that of a loved one, may depend upon it.
