Through education, direct services, advocacy and epilepsy prevention campaigns, the Epilepsy Families Southeast Wisconsin is dedicated to serving those affected with epilepsy and related seizure disorders to find an improved quality of life. Epilepsy is the medical term used to describe the more than 20 conditions characterized by recurrent seizures. Epilepsy can affect anyone at any age, at any time. Just ask the 59,000 individuals affected by epilepsy in our four county Southeast Wisconsin area, and the 44-50% of those diagnosed with epilepsy whose seizures are NOT medically controlled at this time.
The money raised helps us provide needed services for people and their families living withb epilepsy and provide awareness programs for proper seizure recognition and first aid.
