RAISE your pen to sign the Petition!The Epilepsy Foundation is leading the fight to increase funding for research and programs, stop discrimination and improve access to care.
One way we can do that is by increasing epilepsy awareness nationwide. House Resolution 298, R.A.I.S.E (Raising Awareness and Insight on Seizures and Epilepsy) is an epilepsy awareness resolution currently in the House of Representatives. It asks for no funding, but calls for a greater effort by government agencies to increase epilepsy awareness.
By signing the petition, you can help us persuade legislators across the country to co-sponsor this resolution and get it passed this year!
Nearly than 3 million Americans have epilepsy and 200,000 new cases are diagnosed yearly. For most, there is no cure and many with epilepsy face discrimination and difficulty accessing care.
I strongly urge policymakers to support House Resolution 298, the RAISE Resolution, which will increase epilepsy awareness and understanding to help end discrimination.
