JFA is proud to support our clients at the Epilepsy Foundation of Northeastern New York with a Platinum Sponsorship as they celebrate 40 years of providing life changing care to people living with epilepsy.

In 2020, the Epilepsy Foundation met new challenges as many of the people who rely on their services went into lockdown. Compounding the challenges of the pandemic, outside funding also decreased, and many fundraising events were cancelled. In the past, those funds had provided counseling, service coordination, support groups, information and referral programs, and education to the over 45,000 people in northeastern New York living with epilepsy.

Since 2006, JFA has supported the Epilepsy Foundation’s mission to help people living with epilepsy overcome challenges while also accelerating therapies and research that will put an end to the condition. When we became aware of the financial gap caused by the recent pandemic, we were proud to step in with a gift for their 40th Anniversary celebration.

To commemorate their 40th year, the Epilepsy Foundation of Northeastern New York has launched a webpage to celebrate their achievements, share historical milestones, and highlight the personal stories of individuals affected by epilepsy.
