If it doesn't make cents, we can never make change.  We found out just how underfunded epilepsy really is.  A few people have asked how we got the numbers. We used the NIH funding for 2013 looked on the CDC for the per person affected rate. Then divided the two. We don't want this to be a down play what others are going through but we wanted to show that there are some major discrepancies in funding that need to be addressed. Please keep sharing and promoting epilepsy awareness!
