“In epilepsy, 40 years ago, 30-40% of patients had no therapy that would control their seizures. Today, 30-40% have no therapy that will control their seizures.” You may recall reading these words in our recent letter, as quoted from our Chairman and Co-Founder, Warren Lammert. Truly, “The importance of Epilepsy Awareness Month cannot be overstated.”

May we have your help? Together we can increase awareness, accelerate new therapies and make a difference for the millions of people with epilepsy.

Please visit ETP on Facebook, and “Like” us here!

We thank you greatly dear fans!

Most Sincerely,

Kim Macher
Executive Director
