Our Mission

Stop Seizures. Find Cures. Save Lives.

Our mission is to help people and families affected by epilepsy in New England.

Epilepsy Foundation New England is an independent affiliate of Epilepsy Foundation of America, whose mission is to lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives.

Epilepsy Foundation New England Purple Camps give campers the opportunity to make connections and gain a sense of independence and accomplishment in a safe atmosphere with caring staff, nurses, and volunteers trained in seizure first aid and epilepsy. Thank you for giving us the gift of getting to know your son or daughter and entrusting their care to us. All camps have a neurologist on call in case of an emergency.

Help for today, Hope for tomorrow
