Our goal is to educate the community, reduce stigmas, and support anyone affected by seizures through advocacy, case management, education to individuals and groups like school staff and first responders, prescription assistance for seizure medication, support group and travel expense fund (via EFA).
We offer free resources to the 1 in 100 living with epilepsy in Bledsoe, Bradley, Grundy, Hamilton, Marion, McMinn, Meigs, Polk, Rhea, & Sequatchie counties in Tennessee, and Catoosa, Dade and Walker counties in Georgia.
The Chocolate Fling benefit is our largest annual fundraiser.
