What is epilepsy?

About 65 million people worldwide and

3 million in the United States alone suffer from epilepsy.

Epilepsy is a neurological condition marked by a recurrence of seizures. There are more than 40 different types of seizures and they can look very different from person to person. Symptoms can range from a blank stare or “zoning out,” to stiff muscular tension, to violent thrashing.

Despite modern medicine, epilepsy remains a mystery. There is no such thing as living well with epilepsy, and unfortunately, is a life-long battle with no clear pathway toward a cure. The Isaiah Stone Foundation wants to change that reality by giving hope and resources to those fighting epilepsy.

There are 400,000 children living with epilepsy in the U.S.

There are 40,000 new cases of pediatric epilepsy each year.

Overall, 1 in 20 children under 5 is diagnosed with epilepsy.

But, progress and breakthroughs are finally happening.

Be a part of the momentum.
