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.
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?
So here we are…National Epilepsy Awareness Month; 30 days in which we have a platform to push our message of hope, support and advocacy.
It’s one of my favorite evenings…the Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan’s Flame of Hope Awards. My family and I attended the event on Thursday evening, and as I expected, it was just as moving and inspirational as I expected it to be.
