Individuals and families impacted by epilepsy had a ball with the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota Sunday afternoon for a time of bowling, conversation, and dinner.

“It’s an opportunity for those living with epilepsy to know they’re not alone in their journey. The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota is instrumental in helping people navigate their journey. And we provide education support and connection to help overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy,” says Lisa Peterson, the Regional Outreach Manager of EFMN.

Many parents of children with epilepsy came out to provide support, connection and education as they share the mutual challenges of living with someone with epilepsy.

“Our youngest daughter actually suffered a focal seizure a week ago. And through connecting with family, friends, Facebook and other social media organizations, we were able to get in contact with this group,” says Joel Hatland, a parent.

“We’ve been a part of this group about a year and a half now… That was when our daughter was diagnosed with the absence seizures and we got connected with Lisa Peterson from the Epilepsy Foundation. And I’ve gotten a lot of support and help as we kind of navigate this whole process,” says Jeff, another parent.
