According to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, epilepsy is the nation’s fourth most common neurological disorder after migraine, stroke, and Alzheimer’s disease, but public understanding of epilepsy is limited. The Epilepsy Foundation of Virginia leads the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures and save lives. The foundation was established in 1978 to promote awareness about epilepsy and provide assistance to those with the disorder.
