November 10, 2012 – Flowood, MS – A Rainbow of HOPE, Kelsey’s Stroll for Epilepsy Awareness

On May 2,2012 Mississippi lost one of our beloved H.O.P.E mentors and advocates for epilepsy due to complications from a seizure.  Kelsey as well as so many others want to make a difference and change the way epilepsy is viewed.  Raising awareness in the community is one way we will honor Kelsey and ALLthe Mississippians that live with epilepsy.  It will be 3  fun, family-friendly strolls across Mississippi  that raises awareness as well as serves as a major fundraiser for the Epilepsy Foundation of Mississippi.  These strolls will ensure money raised goes to help people with epilepsy.  It is a leisurely walk around and it is not a mile run or 5k.

In a recent report conducted by the Institute of Medicine it concluded that at least 1 in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy at some point in their lifetime, and prevalence may be increasing.  Unfortunately, just as many people die from complication from a seizure as do breast cancer.  Both of these numbers are too high but there are treatments and cures for breast cancer while we are still fighting for a cure for seizures. 

Please make your voices heard at one of the 3 strolls across Mississippi starting inNovember 3, 4 and wrapping up on November 10, 2012 in Flowood, MS. Let’s not lose another moment to seizures.
