120,000 people in 79 Central and South Texas counties with epilepsy. The fact that there were two children with epilepsy in the same family is compelling," Rosales said.

Epilepsy imposes an annual economic burden of $15.5 billion on the nation in associated health care costs and losses in employment, wages and productivity.

For further information about epilepsy or to speak with the Williams family, please contact Kisha James at 301-918-3768 or e-mail kjames@efa.org.
