Lemonade for Livy

November 6, 2018 | By |

Lemonade for Livy raises epilepsy awareness and supports the Epilepsy Foundation’s work to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives through lemonade stands and parties. These events bring people together from around the world together to give hope to those with epilepsy and their families.

We all have our unique stories and experiences with epilepsy. Collectively, we make up the epilepsy community and family. As a family, we need to work as one to raise awareness, provide support, and fund research that will lead to a cure. 65 million people around the world live with epilepsy. That doesn’t include the tens of millions of family members and friends who are also impacted by the disorder. Think of the power we have when we all work toward a common mission.

Honored Hero

Olivia Scheinman (Livy) is the inspiration and symbol behind Lemonade for Livy, a movement created by her family’s organization, Livy’s Hope. Since birth, Livy has been plagued by the damaging effects of epilepsy. She has endured multiple major brain surgeries but the seizures persist.

What started as one neighborhood lemonade stand to raise money in honor of Livy is expanding into a global campaign. It continues to grow because of Livy’s twin sister Hailey and the special bond the girls share, a mother’s love, and a father’s promise made long ago. For more information about Lemonade for Livy, please visit www.LivysHope.com.

Your Honored Hero

Join Livy as a hero and hold a Lemonade for Livy event for someone you know with epilepsy too!

Create Your Own Event

  • Hold a Lemon or Lemonade-themed Happy Hour at your home, apartment, or place of residence or set one up with a friend!
  • Host a dinner party or get together with friends and/or family
  • Any type of Lemon-themed party for birthdays, special occasions, etc.
  • Host a lemon-themed bake sale
  • Hold an event or lemonade stand on your college campus with friends or as part of a sorority/fraternity event
  • Create your own lemon-themed craft party event

The possibilities are ENDLESS and getting started is EASY!

Epilepsy Research

October 4, 2017 | By |

Since the 1990’s, more than a dozen new drugs, devices, and dietary therapies have become available to people living with epilepsy. Despite the benefits and reduced side effects these treatments have offered, the number of people living with epilepsy who cannot effectively control their seizures has remained at 30%, the same as it was more than two decades ago.

It is time to shake up the system with a new approach. Let’s change the system – together.

The Epilepsy Foundation Research Program supports the entire spectrum of discovery from idea to market and is focused solely on the needs of people with epilepsy. We help foster the development of the next generation of scientists and support research that leads to better treatments and care. We strive for excellence, innovation, and radical thinking to end epilepsy. Join our fight: www.epilepsy.com/research.
