November is Epilepsy Awareness Month

Editor,

Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, and Autism Awareness Month all should sound very familiar to you.

Well what about Epilepsy Awareness Month?

As a resident of Delaware, I haven’t seen much on Epilepsy Awareness in the time I’ve lived here. Over two million Americans have epilepsy, and one happens to be my three-year-old son, but yet the public is still very unaware of how serious epilepsy is. November is Epilepsy Awareness Month, and I am working  hard to raise awareness and to get rid of stigmas about epilepsy. It’s time to increase public understanding and acceptance of epilepsy.
