Make a donation to help fund a FREE Epilepsy Camp experience for teens and families struggling with epilepsy.
Dear Friends of the Foundation,
As part of our exciting announcement that our Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Los Angeles (EFGLA) has officially merged with the Epilepsy Foundation (read here), we want to remind you that you while it seems like a big change we only anticipate bigger and better things here at the local level. Our local programs and services will remain and even increase.
In fact, as you can see here, we are still fundraising for Teen Camp and Family Camp – now and in the future. Many campers with epilepsy and their families will be forever grateful for your donation that makes this life-changing experience possible.
We are grateful for your past faithful support and we will count on your continued support at the local and national level. Your support for the Epilepsy Foundation is support for the fight to End Epilepsy – something that is important to all of us.
Your donation to camp is a memorable way to give extra attention to families and kids struggling with epilepsy.
Experiencing Epilepsy Family Weekend Camp last September was nothing less than priceless. From the moment we were greeted at the entrance, we felt like VIP’s … royalty!
The #1 goal of staff and volunteers is to help those affected by epilepsy just be kids and enjoy camp life… We spent our weekend doing everything from ziplining, horseback riding, swimming and archery… to creating birdhouses in the wood shop, carving pumpkins, fishing, and dancing! Saturday night’s highlight was a one-of-a-kind Talent Show featuring all interested participants … Mallory and her younger sibling Trevor had a blast.
Meals in the common dining hall were fun-filled social experiences, as we made new friends each and every day.
Our lives are so much richer for having had this wonderful weekend. Mallory was able to make friends who had similar health challenges and social concerns. Trevor was able to grow in compassion and empathy for his sister, as well as have fun with her doing activities that they would not have otherwise experienced together. They laughed and played, and encouraged and cheered each other.
We will be forever grateful for the experience, and for the donors who make this FREE experience possible for families like ours.
