Heather King of Epilepsy Foundation Arizona told Cable Muse Network, “There are about twenty different types of seizures, so those are the types that we see more often. At the Epilepsy Foundation, our real goal is to increase awareness of different types of seizures as well as our different kinds of programs”.

“I’d really like to find a cure. I have two kids that I watch over, my sons; and I feel co-dependent…” - Blair Roberts

The Foundation states, “Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders. The Epilepsy Foundation is the only American voluntary health agency wholly dedicated to helping people with epilepsy through advocacy, research, education, and services.”

The evening’s finale is sponsored by The Designer Jean Company and expected to feature hot name brands such as Antik, Chip and Pepper, Paper Denim & Cloth, Red Engine, and True Religion.
