Welcome to My Epilepsy Story

My Epilepsy Story (MES) is an international, non-profit organization that serves to bridge the gap for women and girls diagnosed with epilepsy, as well as the children impacted by their mother’s epilepsy, by Collaborating, Advocating, Researching, and Educating (C.A.R.E.) people everywhere about women’s health and epilepsy. 

Our organization distinguishes itself from other organizations by not accepting any pharmaceutical funding. MES has adopted a policy of strict independence when it comes to taking money from drug companies. We are committed to being consistently objective by providing unbiased information about services and resources that may be available. We also believe it is important for women and girls living with epilepsy to be informed about news and issues around drugs, so they can make an educated choice about their healthcare decisions. Our priority at My Epilepsy Story is to serve these females, their families, and the medical professionals that selflessly care for them.

A Little About Our Founder

Founded by Brandy McFadden in 2013, her passion is to advocate for cutting-edge epilepsy research, educate doctors about the patient perspective, educate patients about their epilepsy, and raise funds to do this while sharing her personal story.  As a woman living with epilepsy, Brandy is deeply interested in women’s health issues, specifically women living with epilepsy. She understands firsthand how epilepsy impacts not only the woman but her entire family. 

“Women and girls’ health issues related to epilepsy need to be addressed globally.”

In addition, Brandy is interested in the FULL IMPACT that anti-seizure medications have on ALL people with epilepsy.

“Please join me to help Bridge the Gap for women and girls diagnosed with epilepsy.  Together We Can!” – Brandy McFadden, Founder My Epilepsy Story
