About Epilepsy Foundation of Kentuckiana

Our Mission

The epilepsy foundation leads the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, & save lives.

Our History and Purpose

Celebrating its 32nd year, the Epilepsy Foundation of Kentuckiana has dared to provide the best education, advocacy, outreach, and support services for people living with epilepsy and their families in Kentucky and southern Indiana. While Epilepsy Awareness Month is every month for the Foundation, epilepsy’s official awareness month is November. This year, we are accepting an even greater challenge than ever before. We WILL fight to End Epilepsy! That means increasing awareness and changing the conversation around epilepsy, improving and saving lives through care, advocacy, research and new therapies, education and mobilizing everyone to take action!

We want to ensure that….

  • Everyone knows about epilepsy and seizure first aid.

  • People with epilepsy can access specialty care faster while gaining greater seizure control, and they and their families can benefit from supportive care.

  • People with epilepsy can live full lives in their communities.

  • People with epilepsy don’t die early or suffer injuries.

  • People with epilepsy can benefit from research and new therapies.

  • Everyone can participate with us in the fight to End Epilepsy.

Epilepsy can affect anyone with a brain and anyone with a brain can affect epilepsy. By joining us tonight, you have taken a huge step forward to End Epilepsy through supporting the Epilepsy Foundation of Kentuckiana as we continue to lead the fight to End Epilepsy for the 174,000 children, adults, and veterans who will live with epilepsy in Kentucky and southern Indiana. While we spend countless hours working to make our community a better place for those we serve, our reach could be much greater if YOU joined us in the fight to End Epilepsy. We ask that you raise epilepsy awareness in your everyday life, and that you use your brain to End Epilepsy!
