Natalie Y. Beavers

Patient Leader

I've survived epilepsy for over 35 years now and all I want to do is support and advocate for the many lives affected with this severe brain disorder. I came up with the idea to start a charity to support the many lives affected by epilepsy when I was hospitalized during my brain surgeries in 2008. Angels Of Epilepsy Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity and advocacy that provide the needs for survivors and their families. We provide gifts and supplies to patients that are hospitalized. As well as assistance with patients that can’t afford their medications and provide transportation for those unable to drive. I've also created "The Seizure Diary" that has now made it to 7 countries.
