Natalie Y. Beavers

Patient Leader

Natalie Y. Beavers is an epilepsy survivor, advocate, and founder of the “Angels Of Epilepsy Foundation” outside of Atlanta, GA. She is a proud mother of her two sons and work very hard interacting with many epilepsy survivors and their families, as well as spreading the awareness to get more people educated and involved within the epilepsy community. Natalie was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 5 and throughout her life she’s dealt with many obstacles and challenges. In the summer of 2006, Natalie had a seizure while driving and it became a tragic car accident that change her entire life. Results from several brain tests in 2007, she was told by doctors that there was a lot of damage tissue on the left temporal-lobe and a cyst on her brain. Natalie had two craniotomy (brain) surgeries in 2008 which did decrease her seizure activity. But due to the cyst that’s still on her brain, she battles with seizures from time to time. Spending so much time in the hospital, Natalie met many epilepsy survivors which many of them had similar stories. She talked to her parents about starting an organization that will visit and give gifts to patients at hospitals and assistance for the families. In 2008, the Angels Of Epilepsy Inc. non-profit charity, was organized and has now helped so many survivors and families in Georgia and other states. In 2013, Natalie created a book entitled “The Seizure Diary” and it has made it to 7 countries so far. She has received 3 awards in 2017-2018, which one is the "WEGO Health Lifetime Achievement Award." Natalie also had a television appearance on the well-known show "Divorce Court", to give advice and encouragement to a couple dealing with epilepsy. Being a mother and advocate, Natalie empowers those living with a disability and so many others. She hopes to expand her charity, Angels Of Epilepsy, in other states and continue to supply the needs for the many lives that matter.
