As Florida's expert on seizure treatment and care, the Epilepsy Foundation of Florida is the leading community based organization staffed to meet the medical and social needs of all people with the disorder and aims to increase awareness for epilepsy, and support for the Foundation from individuals, professional groups, corporations and community leaders. In particular, the Foundation wants to reach employers, prominent business leaders, civil servants, educators and celebrities who, among others, have little understanding or even worse, apathy towards the disorder.
The Epilepsy Foundations of Florida strives to help society better understand the disorder and foster a change in people’s attitude based on real facts, not fiction.
Keepers of the Flame
The symbol of the Epilepsy Foundation is a flame, which signifies the light of understanding for a more accepting society and the light of learning that will lead us to better treatments and a cure.
We invite you to invest in the future of the Epilepsy Foundation of Florida by becoming a Keeper of the Flame to help keep the flame of hope burning for thousands of people in our state with epilepsy and seizures.
Our flame burns bright thanks to the generous contributions of devoted individuals like you who give from their hearts to help bring hope and transformation to children, men and women living with epilepsy.
