Epilepsy Advocacy Network

Serving Northern Illinois and the greater Quad City area

Our Mission

The Epilepsy Advocacy Network shall disseminate information about the cause of epilepsy, consequences and prevention of the disorder to people with epilepsy, their families, and the general public. 

Epilepsy Today

488,461 people in Illinois will be diagnosed with epilepsy during their lifetime. That equates to 28,063 people from our region in Illinois.

Consumers with disabilities have the same rights as persons without a disability. The family is the primary social environment for children with developmental disabilities and the basis for lifelong personal relationships as adults. The community is the natural environment in which consumers live, work and play. The fabric of social relationships supports the  natural environment.

What our clients say

"This 3-month gap between diagnosis and follow up doctor visit would have been unbearable without Angie and the Quad City Foundation – my family is eternally grateful!!"
Rebecca A.
"I was approved for disability on the first attempt, which I've heard is very rare. I am very blessed to have the support of the Epilepsy Foundation and hope to continue to have local access to rides, support groups, and fundraising opportunities."
Libbey F.
"The Epilepsy Foundation of the Quad Cities not only provides outstanding service to individuals in the area but to the mental health organizations they share mutual clients with. The clients using both of our services are benefitted by multiple professionals rather than someone whose experience is only in one category. "
Kaitlyn H
"The people in this foundation are active in the community and the awareness that they bring to the public is a great asset. Please, please keep doing what you’re doing! We need you in the Quad Cities and look forward to the continued work you do in this community."
