Each Journey Is Unique
As with many great ideas, the eJourney initiative came from a conversation with leaders in our community. Board members Camila Coelho and Cynthia Hudson suggested a new approach to telling the stories behind the fight against epilepsy. Please join Camila, Cynthia and many, many more in this brave act of standing up against epilepsy. The eJourney is yours, and we want to share it far and wide.
