March 26th is coming, and that means epilepsy awareness day! I encourage you to learn how to handle convulsive seizures and how to spot an absence seizure.

My mom and I have been working towards educating our school district in order to protect other students with the issue. It is likely that you know someone with epilepsy, actually.
