Did you know that one in 26 people in the United States will develop epilepsy at some point in their lifetime?
That means that it could happen to you, your mom, dad, siblings, friends or co-workers.
To raise awareness, Carbon County has declared November as Epilepsy Awareness Month.
Last week, the county commissioners adopted a proclamation with the hope of shedding light on this condition.
Ellen Baca, coordinator for the Epilepsy Foundation Eastern Pennsylvania, was on-hand to accept the proclamation.
