Providing a shoulder and an ear
Epilepsy Saskatoon is not a medical organization. Our focus is to provide support to those who are in any way impacted by epilepsy. This extends to the family and care-givers as well as those individuals who are epilepsy warriors.

Increasing Awareness in Saskatoon
In Canada approximately 1 in 100 people are living with epilepsy and there are over 10,000 diagnosed with epilepsy in Saskatchewan. It is not an uncommon disorder, so it is especially important that we encourage people to talk openly and honestly about what challenges people with epilepsy face in our community and to actively look for ways to help them.
It is also very important that we enhance seizure awareness, which will help us all react calmly and confidently should a fellow citizen experience a seizure.
In order to achieve our goals to support, educate and create epilepsy awareness in Saskatoon, we are always looking for new and interesting fundraising opportunities.
If you have an idea or would like to make a donation to our organization, please send us an email and be sure to check back often to see what adventure we have in the works!
