Message from the President and CEO

“In times of stress, the best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers.”
—Fred Rogers

I am so proud to announce that our organization is renewing its commitment to meeting the needs of those living with epilepsy. We are renewing our promise to help individuals to cope with a life that includes seizures, to help you and your family find better ways to manage seizures, to create more ways to enhance your life, and to support you and your family on this journey toward a life free of seizures and free of side effects.

As we refresh, recharge, and renew ourselves, we’re adopting a new look! And, we ask for your patience as we do a little house cleaning on the site, updating our technology. Remember that here you’ll find the same great people, staff, volunteers, and advocates as always. We will continue the same and even more programs; geared toward empowering folks through education, advocacy, individual assistance, and public awareness. And, as always, we’ll be depending upon you to continue to help and support us in carrying out our mission.

As a member of our local, regional, and Pennsylvania epilepsy community, you are and have been an important ambassador and contributor to the mission and work of our organization. You recognize and believe in the plan to help empower people living with epilepsy by providing them, and their families, with the help, support, and care they need in their local neighborhoods to live life without compromise.

On behalf of our Board of Directors, Professional Advisors, and staff, I encourage you to let us know how we’re doing. Send us your comments and write to us with your suggestions and advice. We look forward to continuing our work with us and on your behalf.

Peggy Beem Jelley
President & CEO
