Amber’s Story

By: Amber

It all started for me was when I was seven years old. I did have seizures before I that age, but my parents thought I just was having a fuss like any baby or child. When I started not reaching my milestones on time, like learning to walk and speak, my parents got pretty worried.

After some research, I found out that 3.4 million Americans suffer from epilepsy, and there are an estimated 65 million people worldwide currently living with epilepsy. One in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy in their lifetime. Epilepsy can affect anyone of any age, and globally, the burden of epilepsy is HUGE.
