Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii
Not many things knock the wind out of you like seeing your child have a seizure
and then the diagnosis, "Your child has epilepsy." We want to be there for families
of the newly diagnosed.
We will purchase backpacks and create a toolkit that provides parents with a general
introduction to epilepsy. Toolkits will address the most common concerns a parent
has when their child is newly diagnosed. We will also include additional literature
and resource information as well as our foundation brochure and a note inviting contact.
Our goal is to reach people at the time of their diagnosis so we can provide information,
education and support. The families we reach will then become support to other families
and help the Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii pay it forward.
