Talking Up CURE in Charlotte
Last week, I was down in Charlotte for the DNC. It was an incredible—but exhausting!—experience, to say the least. While I’m happy to be back home in Chicago, I had a fabulous time, and took every opportunity to spread the word about CURE and the importance of epilepsy research. I met a lot of folks who I hope will help us launch epilepsy into the spotlight. We really need to raise the visibility of this disease, especially considering that 1 in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy in their lifetime!

And, some great news: We are honored to be nominated by one of our supporters for inclusion in JP Morgan Chase’s 2012 Community Giving Campaign. This program is specially designed to spread awareness of nonprofit organizations while also giving them the chance to compete for their share of a $5 million grant sponsored by Chase. You can vote every day until September 19th, either by visiting Chase’s Community Giving Facebook page or www.ChaseGiving.com if you are a Chase customer. Please vote to show your support for CURE! And spread the word!
