I EPILEPSY

Patient Leader

Hi! I’m Rafaela, from Brazil living in LA. Was diagnosed with epilepsy when I was 1 year old. Discovered my path is to help and support, but specially spread the word out there. Join the epilepsy community and raise awareness to end stigma. Epilepsy doesn’t define me. And it doesn’t define you either!
