OUR PROMISE

Kasam Parkar founder of The Voice For Epilepsy association based in the UK

“Few people are actually willing to step up and talk about epilepsy. My mission is to spread awareness and be an advocate for those who do not have a voice or are afraid to speak out.

I want those living with epilepsy to have a voice, to find the courage within themselves and become an advocate supporting me and each other in raising awareness.”

– Kasam Parkar (Founder of The Voice For Epilepsy association)

HELP CHANGE LIVES TODAY

Few people are actually willing to step up and talk about Epilepsy. We need to make the world aware of the impact Epilepsy has on so many and find a cure. Without a cure, there are far too many people who will never have relief from seizures.
