I have given to the Epilepsy Foundation Minnesota (EFMN) for the last few years during the Community Fund Drive. Having epilepsy myself since I was 12, I am thankful for the support that the Epilepsy Foundation Minnesota has given me over the years. EFMN has a day at the capital to help raise awareness and they have been able to get a few rules changed and bills passed because of this. There are also support groups and family events to help connect those with seizures to others. The goal of EFMN is to educate, empower, and connect. I am glad to support a charity that I feel strongly about. EFMN was also there to support me in January when I had brain surgery to end my seizures. Giving back feels good.
