Empowering Epilepsy

Was founded by people with epilepsy, for people with epilepsy. Our goal is to provide free or low cost programs and services to show people with epilepsy and their loved ones what they can do while living with seizures.

But, we can’t do this alone.

We need your help to empower people with epilepsy and their families in Northeast Ohio.
