Thanks to the Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan for a wonderful Summer Stroll season!
We as epilepsy advocates can’t be discouraged when we don’t get the help or the support we want. We have to work for it, and work hard. NOT EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS EPILEPSY OR EVEN KNOWS WHAT IT IS! So, it’s our job to teach them what the needs are and what programs are available.
I was thinking this morning, are there some realistic New Year’s resolutions that I actually might adhere to? And, can I make sure they not only benefit and define me, but are also epilepsy issues I care so deeply about?
You all…or WE…should be very proud of our efforts to promote Epilepsy awareness. And, I know it’s not over yet. As someone who is always watching the process, I have to wonder: how successful have we been in moving the needle?
It’s not just those with Epilepsy that a service dog can serve. Dogs can be hearing dogs, seizure alert dogs, service dogs for children with autism and guide dogs for people with visual impairments. The world of service dogs, their training and care, is a remarkable one.
It seems as if there are SO many organizations, benefits, foundations that center on Epilepsy, cropping up all around the web. And, if you’re like me, everything has a certain appeal. So, how do you choose?
