Bringing Awareness to Epilepsy this November

 

 

Several months throughout the year I share a cause that has meaning to me. In November I like to promote Epilepsy Awareness.

Free printables to help raise awareness! Epilepsy Awareness is a great cause to learn more about. Young people are losing their life to this condition (SUDEP) and many need our support and understanding. Hope for a cure.

 

Last November I shared a post and free printables to support Epilepsy Awareness Month. Epilepsy has been a cause that became dear to my heart when my cousin lost a child to SUDEP, which is a result of epilepsy.  This made me realize just how critical epilepsy can be. I added it to my list of causes that I wanted to support at inkhappi. 

You can find my November 2013 post on Epilepsy ——–>>HERE. I shared many facts, statistics and printables. I also shared a very sweet video in which we see the faces of epilepsy and those who have lost their life to SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy).  I won’t repeat that information here today but there is so much information on the web if you want to learn more.

Someone out there needs your support and understanding!

A great place to learn and donate is the Epilepsy Foundation

The statistics are astounding.

Here are a few taken from the Epilepsy Foundation.

65 MILLION: Number of people around the world who have epilepsy.

OVER 2 MILLION: Number of people in the United States who have epilepsy.

1 IN 26 people in the United States will develop epilepsy at some point in their lifetime.

BETWEEN 4 AND 10 OUT OF 1,000: Number of people on earth who live with active seizures at any one time.

150,000: Number of new cases of epilepsy in the United States each year

ONE-THIRD: Number of people with epilepsy who live with uncontrollable seizures because no available treatment works for them.

6 OUT OF 10: Number of people with epilepsy where the cause is unknown.

The mission of the Epilepsy Foundation is to lead the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy.
