Tiffany Kairos

Patient Leader

As an epilepsy survivor, I am an epilepsy advocate, blogger and founder of the Organization and online community, The Epilepsy Network (TEN). I help all who have been affected by epilepsy and the public better understand the condition, and empower individuals with epilepsy to share their stories and inspire others. If I can help at least one person, that's worth it to me.
