The Epilepsy Support Network of Orange County is setting the stage as we move toward our goal of a "Seizure Free Zone" for people affected by epilepsy. The Walk is Saturday, May 18 at TeWinkle Park in Costa Mesa as those affected by epilepsy rally to keep the programs and services that improve their quality of life. This is a family event that includes a non-competitive walk around the carnival beginning at 8:30 a.m. followed by a fun carnival for children, a silent auction, and a barbecue lunch.
Featuring ESNOC Board of Director, Tracy Dixon-Salazar and her daughter Savannah. Voice of the Epilepsies is a documentary film with an intimate portrayal of life with epilepsy, told by brave warriors that battle with seizures everyday. For more info visit www.epilepsymovie.com.
Epilepsy affects 32,000 people in Orange County. For 11,000 of these individuals medical treatment has been ineffective and they continue to have seizures. Because epilepsy is a complex neurological condition, many times people need help sorting through medical, educational, social and emotional aspects of the condition. Most of what the general public knows is based on harmful oversimplification, myths and outdated information, further perpetuating the problem.
The Epilepsy Support Network of Orange County is improving the outlook for people diagnosed with epilepsy. We are accomplishing this by providing the highest quality epilepsy specific educational programs as well as support group services. ESN's energetic and experienced staff members have succeeded in accomplishing our goal of seizure free lives for many of our members. We look forward to being your partner as you pursue seizure control. Contact us immediately and let us help you on your journey to a much improved quality of life!
Mission Statement: The ESNOC is committed to building a community of support to improve the lives of those affected by epilepsy through education, programs and advocacy.
Core Values: Compassion, Respect, Integrity,
Excellence and Community Benefit.
