Epilepsy Awareness Month - Brendan's Story - Don't Let Anything Stand In Your Way!

People with epilepsy don’t let anything or anyone stand in their way. Friends and family members may fear getting involved with someone with seizures, but it’s important to reach out and get involved. Friends and family members need support too, so learn the skills needed to better manage your seizures and control them wherever you are. Treating epilepsy is a long process that can be challenging at times. But by learning how to improve your life during these difficult times, you can make the journey towards recovery smoother for yourself and future generations. This National Epilepsy Awareness Month, we’ve worked to build knowledge around epilepsy with in-house staff training, joining in events such as the EFGC 5K, and showcasing success stories — as we are here.

Brendan Wolfe is a graduating student of Midwestern Career College in Electroneurodiagnostic (END) Technology. We caught up with Brendan to learn about his incredible journey and how it inspired his career pathway.

Epilepsy affects more than 1.2 million Americans. Even with the increase in awareness, many people still have a hard time understanding why they get these seizures. For some people, it can be a constant struggle to keep working or going to school. But for others, life with epilepsy can be much easier.

Brendan’s story shows that with the right treatment and support, you can live a normal life. So what are you waiting for? Get treatment and training now, increase awareness in family and friends, and spread the word for National Epilepsy Awareness Month!
