Susan AxelrodIt's my great honor to serve as Founding Chair of CURE. This is a labor of love that's been the focus of my life since CURE's inception in 1998. I live and breathe this because of my daughter Lauren, and what my family has had to live with since epilepsy entered our lives in 1982. I do this in honor of her, and the millions of others with epilepsy and their loved ones.

In my blog, I'll share highlights of this journey—meetings across the country with patients, families, researchers, and others who are joining this movement. This is an unprecedented, hopeful, and exciting time for this movement---please follow me here!
