About Epilepsy Foundation New England (EFNE)
Founded in 1983, EFNE has been leading the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives. In the U.S., 1 in 26 people develop epilepsy in their lifetime. EFNE brings communities together to raise awareness, fund education and research, and provide resources and support to children, adults, and families in their fight against epilepsy.

Light the Way Today
Our focus is on providing Help for Today and Hope for Tomorrow. However, we also need to share the reality that epilepsy can be fatal. Our goal is to bring together our community and encourage people to learn about Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP). EFNE is committed to: Increasing SUDEP awareness; Providing education on how to reduce the risk of SUDEP; Fundraising to support research to save lives; Honoring the lives of our loved ones who have passed away; and Supporting our SUDEP families.
