Epilepsy Facts

Epilepsy causes many different types of seizures.

Epilepsy is a disorder some are born with, but can also be causes by injury to the brain any time after birth.

Some people with seizures have to take large amounts of medications in order to have seizure free days.

Seizures can be mild to severe and can even cause death.

Even though it effects as many people as breast cancer it gets far less attention or research funding.

People with epilepsy are even mentioned in the Bible.
