#Iam1in100 Campaign

I have epilepsy and I am a creator; I am a volunteer; I love gardening; I am struggling; I am an engineer; I run marathons; I am a fighter; I am a person; I have hope. # I am 1 in 100

We are launching the #Iam1in100 campaign in March 2020. Download the material below and help expand the representation of what it means to live with epilepsy.

If you have epilepsy, download the sign that says “I have epilepsy and…” In the blank space provided, you can write about how you’re feeling or how you’re handling having epilepsy. You can also write about your hobbies, interests, skills, and life beyond epilepsy.

If you know someone with epilepsy, download the sign that says “Someone I care about has epilepsy and…” In the blank space provided, you can write about their hobbies, interests, skills, and life beyond epilepsy.

The campaign highlights the range of experiences of living with epilepsy and that people with epilepsy are more than just their epilepsy.
