Epilepsy Foundation

The Epilepsy Foundation works to ensure that people with seizures are able to participate in all life experiences; and to prevent, control and cure epilepsy through research, education, advocacy and services.

Epilepsy is a medical condition that produces seizures affecting a variety of mental and physical functions. It's also called a seizure disorder. A seizure is caused by a brief, strong surge of electrical activity involving part or all of the brain. When a person has two or more seizures without a clear cause (e.g., alcohol withdrawal), it's considered to be epilepsy.

They have an on-line resource about epilepsy and how to live with it.
