ABSENCE-BRIEF SUDDEN LAPSES OF CONSCIOUSNESS(MAY LOOK LIKE HE OR SHE IS STARING BLANKY INTO SPACE FOR A FEW SECONDS)
TONIC-CLONIC- THE BODY BECOMES ENTIRE RIGID DURING THE TONIC PHASE; CLONIC PHASE, THERE IS UNCONTROLLED JERKING. TONIC-CLONIC SEIZURES MAY OR MAY NOT BE PRECEDED BY AN AURA AND ARE OFTEN FOLLOWED BY HEADACHES, CONFUSIONS AND SLEEP. THEY MAY LAST FOR A FEW SECONDS OR SEVERAL MINUTES.

MYOCLONIC-REFRES TO A FAMILY OF EPILEPSIES THAT PRESENT WITH MYOCLONUS. MYOCLONIC JERKS ARE OCCASIONALLY ASSOCIATED WITH ABNORMAL BRAIN WAVE ACTIVITY.
SUDEP-SUDDEN UNEXPLAINED DEATH IN EPILEPSY REFERS TO THE UNEXPECTED DEATH OF A SEEMINGLY HEALTHY PERSON WITH EPILEPSY, WHERE NO CAUSE OF DEATH CAN BE FOUND.

Hello! My name is Anna Gray. I am 22 years old and I'm from Knoxville, TN. I am one out of many living with Epilepsy. I was diagnosed at a very young age and have faced many trials and tribulations that come along with having Epilepsy, but I have managed to get through them with the help of my family and friends. This will be my second time doing the walk for Epilepsy, my first being in D.C. I am currently wanting to reach a goal of $300.00 to help fund the NW Epilepsy Foundation and to raise more awareness for Epilepsy. I may have Epilepsy, but it does not have me. God bless you all and thank you for supporting Epilepsy Foundation Northwest. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
