Each year, more than 1 in 1,000 adults and 1 in 4,500 children with epilepsy die from Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP); the risk increases to 1 in 150 for people whose seizures are poorly controlled.
Epilepsy Foundation New England's #lightthewaytoday raises awareness of epilepsy and shines a light on the difficult reality that epilepsy can be fatal, and that too many are lost to SUDEP each year.
Join us. Plan to #lightthewaytoday with us on March 26 by lighting a candle and connecting through social media.
