Houston Stroll for Epilepsy

We are so grateful for everyone’s involvement in the Houston Stroll for Epilepsy on April 8th! So far we have raised $135,000 but still have a long way to go to reach our goal of $180,000! The Donation Portal is still open so keep fundraising for your team or individuals and help the Epilepsy Foundation reach our goal! Don’t forget that we give away prizes for any individual who raises $250 or more! For questions, contact Amanda Rockwell at 888-548-9716 or via email at stroll@eftx.org.

 


 

Youth Transition Program

The Transition Program promotes independence, individuality and growth for ages 12-19 years old who live with epilepsy and their parents/caregivers. The program offers a supportive environment for teens to learn how to manage their seizures and prepare for adulthood. Parents receive advice and tools for parenting their teen during this transition. Meetings are held once a month at the Epilepsy Foundation office at 2401 Fountain View Drive, Suite 900, Houston, Texas 77057. Exact days and times will be announced via social media so please follow us to get Transition meeting announcements.
