|As a registered charity, the BC Epilepsy Society relies on people like you to help deliver programs, produce resources, and fund research in BC.
Some of our programs are delivered by volunteers. We rely on volunteers to govern our Society as members of our elected Board of Directors.
And, of course, through your financial support, sponsoring an event, hosting a fund raiser, making a donation, or considering us in your Will.
Our Shakin' Not Cured James Bond themed gala will be on November 6 at 7pm at The Loft at Earls Yaletown in Vancouver. Click here to order your tickets.
