PEDIATRIC EPILEPSY DAY OCTOBER 26TH
Thanks to California Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry’s Resolution HR114, October 26 has been declared Pediatric Epilepsy Day!
50,000 people die from epilepsy each year. It is the most common brain disorder worldwide!
Unfortunately, when it hits the youngest people of our community it affects their brain in a way that inhibits their cognitive development, may lead to cortical blindness and ultimately death. This is why we must be urgent in creating solutions to bring children to the highest level of care.
Pediatric Epilepsy Legislation
Mickie’s Miracles joined forces with the Infantile Spasms Action Network (iSAN), a collaboration of 26 national and international groups dedicated to stopping Infantile Spasms.
From LA to Chicago, Washington DC to Sacramento, our Visionary Founder and CEO Kristie Griess has been making connections with influential lawmakers. Most notably, Senator Pan, Senator Dodd, Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry and Rep. Michael McCaul to change the way America responds to a child with epilepsy.
This is an important step forward to educate lawmakers, doctors, and the public. We and are excited for future legislative action.
