Epilepsy Awareness Month

More than 60,000 people in Minnesota and eastern North Dakota are living with epilepsy.

Hear Our Stories

This year, we are bringing awareness to the individuals impacted by epilepsy, no matter the relationship. From someone who has epilepsy to a caregiver, we are encouraging our community to tell their stories. Check back every week to read new stories of individuals and their journey with epilepsy.

"No one can do it alone, and though I feel guilty at times asking for help, it is important to remember that it’s not a failure." – Talia Keobounpheng, Parent
