Some people still believe that epilepsy is a rare condition. However, it is estimated that more than 3 million people in the United States have epilepsy. When you look at the numbers worldwide, that is more than 65 million people living with epilepsy. With so many people affected by this condition, it is vital to raise awareness.
If you or someone you love has epilepsy, you should know that you have rights and deserve the same treatment as everyone else. Unfortunately, you may have to fight for those rights. That is why the Epilepsy Foundation Texas has resources for you and your community. We will advocate on your behalf, working hard to provide for you. This can start with access to the medical resources you need to understand and manage your condition. We also provide educational materials to teach you and others about epilepsy and its lifelong impact.

With just a few clicks, you can send e-mails, tweets and make calls to your state and federal elected officials at critical points—like when a bill is about to be voted on or if a bill is about to be signed into law!
