Tell Your Senators: STOP Cuts in Epilepsy Research and Disability Programs!!! Take Action NOW!

The House of Representatives recently passed HR 1, a bill that would provide funding for millions of government programs for the remainder of the current fiscal year. The bill contains cuts to programs that are important to people with epilepsy including: $1 billion in research funding at the National Institutes of Health, of which $5 million will likely come from epilepsy.

The Senate is likely to vote on this same measure in the next week.

Please ask your Senator to vote against HR 1 when it comes to the Senate. Please also spread the word by telling a friend about these cuts, NOW.
