The support of ONE, an impact for MANY
Epilepsy affects more Americans than multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and Parkinson’s disease COMBINED.
- An estimated 2.2 million Americans have epilepsy and 150,000 new cases are diagnosed in the U.S. every year.
- In Minnesota and North Dakota, 60,000 people have epilepsy.
- Every 4 minutes someone is diagnosed with epilepsy.
Each number in these statistics corresponds to an individual, a family, a classroom, a workplace, a neighborhood. Yet epilepsy remains one of the most misunderstood and underfunded medical conditions of our time.
The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota (EFMN) is committed to helping people with seizures realize their full potential. By developing programs that educate, connect and empower individuals and communities, partnering with world class Level 4 Epilepsy Centers and other non-profits. EFMN is making a difference in the lives of thousands of Minnesotans and North Dakotans every year.
By supporting the Foundation today you can be part of the process of educating others, connecting individuals/families and empowering communities. Your support can impact people for a lifetime.
