Who’s Your Epilepsy Hero?

Launched in November 2016 by Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Inc. in partnership with the Epilepsy Foundation, #MyEpilepsyHero seeks to unmask and celebrate the unsung heroes in the fight against epilepsy. We want to connect Epilepsy Heroes of all kinds to inspire and encourage each other with stories of hope, kindness, fearlessness, and perseverance.

Since launch, hundreds of stories from across the US have been shared, resulting in a close-knit and supportive community on Facebook. Our heroes come together to share in the triumphs of each fight and to offer encouragement and support when a hero is having a hard time.

Join our community of Epilepsy Heroes and help spread epilepsy education and awareness.

John and Karen talk about their son who is their hero.

Christian’s hero is his dad.
