About My Campaign

Many people in the world today suffer from epilepsy. Epilepsy causes limited independence/unable to drive, pain, mental disabilities, memory problems, learning disabilities, depression, and has many more negative outcomes on people who have it. I have a dream that one day, a cure for epilepsy will be found. But it takes a lot of research before this becomes a reality. Epilepsy can come from any part of the brain, a very complicated organ to understand, which is why no cure has been found yet. Every little bit adds up, so a donation of any amount would be gratefully appreciated.
