The Epilepsy Foundation is working to create a more comprehensive and effective network of local advocates - individuals and families affected by seizure disorders/epilepsy who can help us, and themselves, by sharing their personal experiences with their elected officials.
To accomplish this task, we've set a goal of getting 100,000 persons to sign on to a broad-based petition encouraging our elected officials to support epilepsy research, pass legislation beneficial to the epilepsy community, and to make improvements in the healthcare system of our country. The exact wording of the petition and the ability to sign on to it electronically can be found at www.epilepsypetition.com
By signing this petition, you will also provide us with the ability to send you "advocacy alerts" on upcoming legislation that can impact the epilepsy community in a positive or negative way. Together, our voices can make a difference in Washington and at the state capitol!
