Being the Founder, Trustee & Chairman of Epilepsy Foundation, I am aware of the work done under my guidance with support from many neurologists, social workers & philanthropists. Epilepsy Foundation is working tirelessly for the past 3 years to eradicate epilepsy in India and in particular from Maharashtra. The Rural Camps held in Maharashtra every month with National Rural Health Mission (NRHM), where free counseling, investigation & medication are given to all patients has been highly successful & admired by all.
Epilepsy Foundation India is an NGO that focuses on widespread yet less known disease epilepsy. Every epileptic patient irrespective of caste, creed or strata of society receives the treatment. The message to all is "Epilepsy is treatable if diagnosed early".More about EPILEPSY FOUNDATION
Epilepsy is a treatable disease today but needs early supervised treatment. In today's era, new medications with lesser side effects and better efficacy we can treat almost 70-80% patients easily. For the rest there is new hope today in the form of surgery, Ketogenic diets, Vagal-Nerve Stimulation, Pacemakers, etc. These wonderful and up-to date techniques are not only available allover the world but also in India. Yet they remain expensive and out of reach for most patients. We at the Epilepsy Foundation strive to be a conduit between deserving patients and these treatment options, irrespective of their status. It's our ambition to give them their best shot to a fulfilling, normal life. Epilepsy or not, every one of us dreams and has aspirations to be someone. So why should it hamper them from becoming the next Da Vinci, Newton or Steve Jobs? I humbly call on you to become a part of us and our dream and make miracles happen.
