Alliance Ohio is dedicated to assisting
those affected by seizures by
providing vital, unduplicated support
services to our local communities—
free of charge. We’re proud that
100 percent of your donation stays

services include: education programs,
individual and family counseling, art
therapy, support groups, therapeutic
camps, school support, advocacy, and
our Young Adult Support Network.
One in 10 people will suffer a seizure
in their lifetime. The Institute of
Medicine states 1 in 26 people will be
diagnosed with epilepsy at some point
in their lives. In America, epilepsy is as
common as breast cancer and takes
as many lives. Epilepsy is a disease of
the brain characterized by recurrent
seizures. Seizure onset can occur at
any age without warning.
“Epilepsy Alliance Ohio is dedicated to supporting those impacted by epilepsy in local communities by confronting the spectrum of challenges created by seizures.”
Your support stays local and truly makes a difference in our community! Last year with the help of donations we were able to assistant over 11,550 people touched by epilepsy.
1,710 people received the counseling they needed.
7,069 people received education/training on epilepsy.
216 children attended our children's camp, Camp Flame Catcher.
32 adults were cared for in our residential group homes.
We cannot do this without you, please consider helping us continue these valuable services we provide to our community!
The Epilepsy Alliance has been a major part of my life since I was 10. It has helped me to see epilepsy as a gift, not a hindrance or something to be embarrassed about. The Alliance has introduced me to people who have changed my life to this very day. It has opened so many doors for me and my family. Epilepsy Alliance has been one of the biggest influences and blessings throughout my life
Following my second seizure and receiving the diagnosis of epilepsy, I reached out to the EAO. Since that first phone call, I’ve received individual counseling services, regularly attended support group, participated in several 5K run/walks and, most recently, the 10K run/walk. It is with the on-going guidance and care of the EAO that I have begun to accept and embrace what it means to live with epilepsy; to entertain the notion that in addition to many challenges, epilepsy carries with it the option of being a boundless teacher.
