Anna is one of those 2 to 3 million Americans with epilepsy who does not have complete seizure control OR experience seizure control at the cost of debilitating side effects from medication. Anna has felt the full impact of epilepsy in her life and cannot attend her neighborhood high school.
In over 30% of Americans with epilepsy, seizures cannot be controlled with treatment. Uncontrolled seizures may lead to brain damage and death. There is an increasingly large incidence of new onset epilepsy in the aging population as a result of strokes, brain tumors and Alzheimer's Disease. In addition, for many solders suffering traumatic brain injury (TBI), epilepsy will be a long-term consquence.
