K.I.P Epilepsy Coalition
Organized by: Victoria Rae Bickford
Spreading Epilepsy Awareness.
We've formed The K.I P Epilepsy Coalition. This is our passion, we do this for free, because we know what it's like to have and care for, those suffering with Epilepsy. We've done a lot, but we want to do so much MORE. We want to take raising epilepsy awareness, providing education, as well as HELPING THOSE WHO REACH OUT TO US, to a whole new level. Often people ask for our help with funds for purchasing SmartWatches, Seizure Alert Dog's, Medical Bills, or the costly Anti-Seizure Medications, and we've exhausted our personal pocketbooks. We need your help and support with this. 1 in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy in their lifetime. Did you know that? Probably not, now ask yourself why? An estimated 3 million Americans and 65 million people worldwide currently live with epilepsy. Each year at least 200,000 people are diagnosed with epilepsy. In two-thirds of patients diagnosed with epilepsy, the cause is unknown. Epilepsy affects more people than multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and Parkinson's combined – yet receives fewer federal dollars per patient than each of these. There is NO cure! We can't do it without you, every little bit makes a difference, if you think your 5 dollars won't help, your wrong, it MATTERS. Thank you so much for any help you can offer!!!!
