Discovering My Epilepsy Family Meetings

To Join the Matty Fund Family and the Discovering My Epilepsy Family Meeting Group please submit a Family Intake Form. Then join the The Discovering My Epilepsy Family Group on Facebook, simply log into your Facebook account and search for "Discovering My Epilepsy." Discovering My Epilepsy family meetings are for children and teens living with epilepsy and their families. Our goal is to help one another understand the many life changes associated with epilepsy. Our group meetings provide a safe, secure, and stimulating environment, the opportunity to meet new friends, and create a support network for children with epilepsy, siblings, parents and/or caregivers.
