Living with Epilepsy


Living with Epilepsy Epilepsy affects millions of Americans and each year 200,000 people are diagnosed with the affliction. People living with epilepsy must deal with radical lifestyle changes as well as a stigma that is often attached to the condition. A Monroe man is learning to live with epilepsy and he is spreading the word on how others can interact with each other, learn from each other and teach all of us a deeper understanding of the condition. He's bringing his Epilepsy Advocate "Take Charge" tour to Charlotte, and he shares his story with us.
