Welcome to the Epilepsy Parent Support Group
The Epilepsy Parent Support Group was formed by parents of children with epilepsy in support of other parents. Our goal is to provide support through sharing and learning from one another, to become better educated about epilepsy, and to learn about the latest treatments so that we may become better advocates in our child's care. The group is open to any parent or caregiver of a child with epilepsy in the Puget Sound region, regardless of where a child is treated. Whether you have a child who is newly diagnosed or has been living with epilepsy for years, we hope you will find us to be a helpful and supportive resource as you navigate daily life.
Camp Korey Summer Picnic 2011
Thank you to all of the wonderful families who came out to the Epilepsy Parent Support Group summer picnic held at the beautiful Camp Korey in Carnation. Camp Korey provides summer camps for special needs kids and they graciously donated the use of their pool and surrounding gardens to our group. We had close to 40 people attend and the Seattle weather held out nicely to give us some gorgeous and much needed sunshine. We look forward to having more social activities this next year.
