We’ve Been Honored! | November 30, 2011

We’ve been honored by being listed on “The 35 Best Blogs for Epilepsy Support”!

“Every November, the medical community, patients, loved ones, and compassionate supporters recognize Epilepsy Awareness Month. As with many medical conditions, epilepsy, Dravet Syndrome, infantile spasms, seizures, and related diagnoses creak beneath the weight of some very unfortunate myths. That’s why hearing directly from professionals, patients, parents, and other loved ones proves absolutely integral. Without their voices, misconceptions keep perpetuating, leaving many with epilepsy feeling unfairly misunderstood and marginalized. The following blogs provide possible venues for gaining a well-rounded education about everything the condition involves. For the diagnosed, families, and friends, they also weave together a nurturing community exchanging information, advice, and most importantly, love.”

  3. You deserve it Phylis. I love alot of the information and articles that you do provide as they are so informative and very very well researched. I wouldn’t have started helping to advocate if there weren’t people like you to help lead the way on how to do so. Congratulations.
