Epilepsy Patients - Fear Us Not

2016 Epilepsy Awareness Month video

Due to unforeseen circumstances with two of our key speakers, we have chosen to cancel this event.  We want to be respectful of other speakers' time and yours!

So - we are hoping to reschedule for some time in November.  

On a positive note - this gives us time to put together an even better program with more speakers and information!

Thank you for understanding!

Be on the look out for updated information soon!

South Carolina Advocates For Epilepsy will be volunteering again this year to help out with the 41st Annual Turkey Day Run! The volunteer shifts are now open which means you can secure your shift now, before they close the shift. There are 7 shifts to choose from - including Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Please consider helping us schedule as many shifts as possible. The Knights of Columbus are extremely generous with their donations to us and other local organizations. The amount of the donation is based off the number of shifts our volunteers work and total amount raised by the event. This is an easy way for us to secure funds to keep raising awareness!

Follow the link below and register asap - then let me know what shift you have signed up for by sending an email to Karen@scepilepsy.org! Be sure to designate South Carolina Advocates For Epilepsy as the organization you are volunteering for. Thanks!

Take the right steps in preventing and helping Adults in a time of need. This will give you tips, on how to be SAFE.

No child wants to experience a seizure nor does any adult want to see an innocent child suffer through a seizure. Read through our tips on how to help and protect children in times of need.

SAFE is based out of Charleston, which is home to our largest and longest standing chapter.  Our goal is to re-activate chapters within the state after having to temporarily cease meetings/activities in several areas.
