Join Us For The First-Ever Swing FORE A Cure For LGS
Saturday, July 23, 2022
LGS is a severe form of epilepsy that typically becomes apparent during infancy or early childhood. Children with LGS experience frequent, uncontrollable seizures and suffer from many different types of seizures. Some children with LGS survive into adulthood and the majority are completely dependent on others for their daily care.
LGS may be treated with drugs, diets, neural stimulating devices, brain surgery, and/or alternative therapies, but of the more than 30 therapies that exist to treat seizures, no specific therapy is effective to stop the seizures in LGS. For most patients, the odds of achieving seizure freedom are less than 15% and the odds of having typical intellectual ability are less than 5%.
Our goal at the LGS Foundation is to end the devastation and suffering caused by LGS. You can help us by participating in or donating to Swing FORE A Cure!
