Faces of Epilepsy: Stories

The Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado is dedicated to meeting the needs of the more than 50,000 Coloradans living with epilepsy and seizures across the state. Your personal stories can awaken awareness, comfort and inspire others while reducing the sense of isolation that often comes with epilepsy.

We receive many wonderful stories from our community and work to share as many as possible, as quickly as possible. Faces of Epilepsy is a monthly feature on our website, and your story is likely to appear within 6-12 months based on the number of submissions we’ve already received. Please note that all stories are run at the discretion of the Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado, and we cannot guarantee that all submissions will be posted.
