Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow

 

Epilepsy Foundation New England's #lighthewaytoday raises awareness of epilepsy and shines a light on the difficult reality that epilepsy can be fatal.  Each year, more than 1 in 1,000 adults and 1 in 4,500 children with epilepsy die from Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP); the risk increases to 1 in 150 for people whose seizures are poorly controlled. 

Join us. Plan to #lightthewaytoday with us on March 26 by lighting a candle and connecting through social media. Stay tuned for more information.

EFNE is committed to:

  • Increasing awareness of SUDEP and the risk of death in epilepsy 
  • Providing education on how to reduce the risk of SUDEP
  • Fundraising to support research to save lives
  • Honoring the lives of our loved ones who have passed away
  • Supporting families who have lost a loved one to SUDEP

Together we can make a difference to shed light on epilepsy and sudep, remember those we have lost, and make a brighter tomorrow.
