That doesn't mean that education has to stop. I am committing to posting at least one seizure awareness post each month of 2012 (and a bonus one this december!) :D
Did you know that 1 in every 100 americans HAS EPILEPSY?
For those folks out there racing triathlon with me, that means that in a race of 1000 people, 10 folks have epilepsy and they are possibly pushing their bodies to the limit.
Do you know how to help someone who is having a seizure??Please take the time to head over to GetSeizureSmart.org and take their seizure smarts quiz. Just scroll down the the graphic "take the quiz". It is a pop up quiz, so you may need to "allow" for turn off your pop up blocker settings for this site.
I can't stress this enough... knowing this information could SAVE A LIFE!
One last thank you to everyone that followed me on twitter in the month of november for Epilepsy Awareness!!! I was overwhelmed by all of the incredible support!! Thanks to you all, I'll be making a nice donation to Epilespy Foundation, but more importantly we raised awareness and reduced the myths about epilepsy!!
If you are wondering why this topic is so important to me, please read my story here: Tri and Stop M.E.
