He has normal intelligence and motor skills. Jamie has epilepsy. He takes medication to control his condition, but will have a seizure every once in a while. He has had one seizure in the past three months. Our agency has never had success finding a family for a child with epilepsy. Please consider making this sweet child a part of your home!

SUDEP came to the forefront of the world’s mind in 2019 when Disney star Cameron Boyce tragically passed away from SUDEP at the age of 20. While this was the first time many people heard about SUDEP, many others continue to face the risk of SUDEP every day. For people living with epilepsy, SUDEP is the leading cause of death.

Efforts to educate the public and individuals with epilepsy continue. In 2013, the Danny Stanton SUDEP Act mandated that SUDEP be considered when examining deaths of individuals with epilepsy.


At the age of four, Liam was diagnosed with epilepsy and Angelman Syndrome, a genetic disorder causing developmental delays, speech and balance issues, intellectual disability, and seizures. Despite these challenges, Liam, now a lively second-grader, enjoys school with the support of his IEP.

His mother works tirelessly with the school and Epilepsy Alliance Florida's School Advocate to ensure Liam's accommodations are met. This year, he has an assistant teacher and receives vital therapies. EAFLA provided a medical ID bracelet, neurologist appointments, and connected the family to community resources. They also attended the Children's Holiday Party and joined online support groups.

Epilepsy Alliance Florida continues supporting Liam and his mother to ensure his educational needs are met, collaborating with the school for Liam's success. Together, they strive to make Liam's journey one of growth and fulfillment.


Things to expect when you transition from pediatric to adult care:

1. Changes in healthcare providers

Jorge's remarkable journey with the Epilepsy Alliance of Florida embodies the profound impact of collaborative care. Amidst life's trials, Jorge found comprehensive support that not only restored his health but also brought solace, hope, and a renewed sense of belonging.

Jorge's case manager crafted a comprehensive plan that addressed his medical, emotional, and practical needs. Epilepsy Alliance of Florida facilitated crucial medication to alleviate the financial burden of expensive name-brand medications. Beyond addressing his physical needs, EAFLA extended emotional support by connecting Jorge with neurologists, psychiatrists, and psychologists at no cost to him.
