In November, we don’t only celebrate Thanksgiving , but it’s also National Epilepsy Month, during which all the epilepsy advocates dedicate the month to educating people on seizures and epilepsy.
This year, epilepsy advocate, Greg Grunberg has teamed up with Sunovion Pharmaceuticals to create the social media campaign #MyEpilepsyHero. This campaign invites people to share a video or picture of that person who has made a positive impact in their lives. This impact can be anything from a family member helping you deal with epilepsy or just listening, it can be a doctor or just someone who inspires you.
The goal is to get 500 #MyEpilepsyHero posts by December 16 and they will donate $10,000 to The Epilepsy Foundation. So I encourage you to share your epilepsy hero.
I already shared mine:
#MyEpilepsyHero is my family, my parents, my brother, my grandparents and my aunt who are always making sure I have and took my medicine. They were always there when I had a seizure and are always there to celebrate when a month goes by and I’m still seizure free.
And I have many more, my neurologist, therapists and friends. Thanks to all my heroes I’m enjoying a seizure free life and I’m loving it!
Who’s your epilepsy hero?
