A Message From President & CEO Phil Gattone

Dear friends,

For more than 45 years, the Epilepsy Foundation has had a presence in neighborhoods across the country—helping more than 2 million people living with epilepsy. We have fought for equality and an end to discrimination.

We have provided more than $50 million to help researchers find better treatments and therapies. But there is much more to do.

One in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy during their lifetime.

One-third of people with epilepsy live with uncontrollable seizures. Many more live with unacceptable seizure control and side effects. Lack of understanding about epilepsy still creates fear and isolation for many living with the condition. People with epilepsy deserve better.

The Epilepsy Foundation is committed to providing innovative research and therapies, education and advocacy, and essential programs for individuals, families and caregivers. Your planned gifts allow us to invest in new endeavors to support those living with epilepsy and help to ensure the Foundation is here for decades to come.

Thank you for being our partner in creating a life without limits for people living with epilepsy.


President Signature
