Empower Families with Epilepsy

Gracie McNickle (bottom left) with her sister and parents.

“Our daughter Gracie was just starting third grade when epilepsy completely reshaped our lives. We knew she was struggling to keep up in school, but we couldn’t put our finger on why.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota, alongside Gracie’s doctor and school, helped us get the diagnosis we were missing and get Gracie the support she needed.

Thanks to them, we’ve got our Gracie back.

— Amber McNickle, Gracie’s mom
