Testimonials


"We’ll admit it.  We were was nervous when we dropped our son, David, off at Camp Rock N Rally this summer.  David’s neurological differences have come with some behavioral health challenges and we weren’t sure how he’d do being away from home for the first time.  We dropped David off at camp and it went so smoothly!  #bigdeal

The camp was a godsend.  The counselors and medical staff did an incredible job and he wanted to stay a few more days!

-Kaila & Benjamin Anderson, Denver

"The connections and the resources are so valuable. I have learned how to grow and create a positive mindset. I look forward to helping others as this group has helped me! Interacting with others who have epilepsy is very helpful, it makes you feel like you aren’t alone in a world of unknowns."

Background Statement

The Foundation was founded in 1964 by Dr. Harriet Hunter. Working from her basement, Dr. Hunter and a group of loyal volunteers began providing counseling and support for people living with epilepsy. As the organization's reputation grew, permanent staff ensured the development of strong programs.

This evolution continues as the Foundation's resources and funding have more than doubled in the past six years. The Foundation maintains strong working relationships with all major health care institutions serving people with epilepsy and continues to develop meaningful programs in response to the needs of people living with epilepsy and their families.
