Epilepsy Foundation of North Carolina, Inc.
The Epilepsy Foundation leads the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy. The Epilepsy Foundation of North Carolina was started in 1972 by a social worker, Ms. Ruth Bowen, who worked for United Way in Charlotte. Ms. Bowen recognized the serious lack of understanding that so often accompanied the diagnosis and the burden it brought to the person with epilepsy and his/her family as well as to the community. Although she had no personal ties to epilepsy, Mrs. Bowen sought to pull together others who were interested in trying to make a difference for this population that was so isolated and neglected.
