Epilepsy affects 3.4 million Americans and 65 million people worldwide. There are no age, gender, race, cultural or socioeconomic barriers … *anyone can have epilepsy! *The myths and misconceptions surrounding this condition persist, leading to stigma and discrimination. Through our work, we aim to dispel these myths, raise awareness, and nurture a more accepting, compassionate, and understanding world!
Through the arts, we provide a safe space to share creative voices with a goal of engaging the individual, helping them to cope with the impact of epilepsy, achieve their highest potential, and become active, productive members of society.
