Each year November is recognized as National Epilepsy Awareness Month. This is an opportunity for each of us to take a moment to spread the word about the millions of people living and dying as a result of this complex group of disorders.
Here are a few opportunities to get involved:

If you are worried you don’t have gear to get you through the month, check out the Living Well With Epilepsy Gear Shop. We’ve just added a bunch of new products with the Epilepsy Awareness design. My favorite is the coffee mug I use each morning.
Or check out this super comfy t-shirt that my daughter and I love. My favorite is the long sleeve. You can find the shirts here:Get your Epilepsy Awareness T-Shirt
