SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy)

by Eric Miller


This is Carolina, my wife. Today marks what would have been our four year anniversary. Carolina passed away tragically at the age of 25 as a result of SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy). In Carolina’s honor and in honor of all those living with and lost to epilepsy, on this day, I ask you to take a moment…

Take a moment and do more than simply liking this post…

Take a moment and work to change the way the world sees and understands epilepsy; a spectrum of neurological disorders that affects 65 million people worldwide.

Take a moment and teach someone about epilepsy in hopes that someday, someone’s life will not be cut short as a result of seizures.

Take a moment and teach ONE person today about proper seizure recognition and first aid. Or learn for yourself. You may contribute to saving a life, perhaps your own.

Take a moment of silence for Carolina and the far too many gone too soon at the hands of epilepsy; about 50,000 a year.

Take a moment today to value those who are important to you because you never know if you have tomorrow.
