Dear Pennsylvania Epilepsy Advocates,

You’ve done it!  You helped to ensure that funding for epilepsy services in Pennsylvania will continue throughout next year.  The final state budget enacted by Pennsylvania does include a specific line item for epilepsy services and $390,000 in state funding for epilepsy programs.

Congratulations to all of the advocates who made this possible!

The Epilepsy Foundation Eastern Pennsylvania would like to thank everyone who took the time to call, write and email Pennsylvania legislators about funding in the PA state budget.  Advocates like you who found the time to share their personal stories about epilepsy with your elected officials made a difference and the PA General Assembly responded to your calls, letters and emails by granting our request that funding for epilepsy be included in the budget.

Now, is the time for all of us to say “thank you” to our state representatives and senators.  Send a quick email or call and leave a phone message telling your legislators how much you appreciate their support for epilepsy services.

Again, thank you for helping the Epilepsy Foundations in Pennsylvania to lead the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy!

Thank you!
