* "A Prisoner Of My Own Mind" by Rhonda Reed *
Angels Of Epilepsy send our congratulations to a dear friend and supporter, Rhonda Barkley-Reed, who has written a book about her life entitled "A Prisoner Of My Own Mind." Rhonda is a native from Atlanta, GA who has experienced many obstacles in life. As the nightmares came, the reality of life set in and she knew it went further downhill. Being blessed with a gift through visions and dreams at a very early age, she knew this gift was special but didn't realize how much until God used her to encourage others from what he showed her.
This book will be released on Saturday, May 14, 2016 at her book signing party here in Atlanta. There will be mentor, Natalie Beavers from Angels Of Epilepsy Foundation and motivational specialist and relationship expert, Charles Dunn, speaking at this occasion. There will also be red carpet, LIVE music, giveaways, food & drinks, and more!

* Governor Dayton proclaims May 9 as Seizure Smart Schools Day *
Great news for many in the state of Minnesota. Governor Dayton declares May 9 as Seizure Smart Schools Day in the state of Minnesota! Coach Kill’s Chasing Dreams Fund supports EFMN's efforts to educate schools about epilepsy and support students with seizures to reduce bullying and stigma.
* Device For Epilepsy *
Today you can buy a few different devices that identify when you’re having a seizure and call for help. For example, the SmartWatch is a wristwatch-like monitor that detects shaking motions. The watch will immediately send a warning signal to your family members or caregiver if you have a seizure in your sleep.
Another device, called EpDetect, turns your smartphone into a seizure detection system. It sends a report of your health and your GPS location to a family member or friend when you have a seizure.
The medical alert bracelet is a much lower-tech option that’s been around for many years. It contains emergency contact phone numbers and information about your condition. Information like the type of epilepsy you have and your medications help medical personnel know how to treat you in case you can’t speak for yourself.
