Not sure what to say? Here is a sample email or letter you can use:

Greetings,

I’m a constituent of yours who is impacted by epilepsy.  Did you know 1 in 10 people will have a seizure in their lifetime, and 1 in 26 will develop epilepsy?  I ask that you continue the funding to support the Epilepsy Foundation of Mississippi’s programs and services.  Without them we don’t have a voice to raise awareness and educate others.

Insert your personnel story here:

I ask that you please consider the importance of the 60,000 Mississippians currently living with epilepsy and those yet to be diagnosed.

Thank you for your time and support,
