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. This charity supplies the needs for patients as well as the families dealing with those hospitalized such as lodging, gift cards for meals and parking, and other needs. We provide transportation for epilepsy survivors that are unable to drive and supply medical I.D. bracelets and necklaces to survivors. Angels Of Epilepsy provides activity classes for survivors and caregivers, as well as health seminars and workshops throughout the year. AOE also visit schools, summer camps, and churches to give first-aid tips and educational information about epilepsy and seizures. In 2010, Natalie created a book entitled “The Seizure Diary”
