EFNC Volunteers on the Move!

Three EFNC volunteers headed to the SDA Capitol City Block Party in Sacramento on August 24th.  They spoke directly to 58 people and reached many more.  On behalf of everyone dealing with epilepsy our grateful thanks go out to Michael Flynn, Caron Nogen PSY, and Gary Wilson. Want to help?  Schedule a training at your business, school, service club or church and contact us at efnca@epilepsynorcal.org

415-677-4011.  Remember, one in 100 people have epilepsy.  A little bit of information can go a long way.

Summer Fun from California to Spain!

'Sea of Dreams' (Mar de Somnis), the first epilepsy youth summer camp in Spain, took place due to the hard work of EFNC Board member Lane Auten and his team of caring staff.  Modeled after the EFNC Youth Summer Camp, Mar de Somnis provided an unforgettable experience for Spanish children with epilepsy.  Children were able to attend summer camp, play, swim and make new friends with appropriate medical supervision.  Our own Maritza Lopez, R.N., M.S. volunteered as well as other clinicians and counselors. 

 

"There is a 'Sea of Dreams' that can be made possible for youth with epilepsy in all parts of the world." Maritza Lopez R.N, M.S., Epilepsy Nurse Specialist, USCF
