One in 50 children has epilepsy, and one such child is Satchel, who lives with his family on Signal Mountain. His mother Jeni describes his fight against epilepsy this way: "Epilepsy is so rude. It pops into your day unexpectedly, uninvited, and definitely unwanted... the worry, the emotions, the after-affects."

Since there is no "magic pill" or absolute cure for epilepsy, many people in our area fight a daily struggle for stable-living.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Southeast Tennessee is hosting its 2nd Annual "Walk to Fight Epilepsy," on Nov. 19, from 1 to 3 p.m. at Warner Park. This fun walk is costume-themed and dog-friendly and includes vendors, cloggers, mask-making, the Nick Lutsko Band, Looie the Lookout and much more.
