Support Use of Modern Technology to Treat Patients Disabled with Epilepsy

R A started this petition to U.S. House of Representatives and

Epilepsy is the most common neurological disease but only a small amount of funding is put toward researching a cure or treatment for patients so they can become free of seizures.  This must be changed.  Technology to provide successful treatment is available but not implemented or it takes too long before used to help patients.   Please help millions by supporting this petition to promote high tech medical treatment.

The extremely slow study and approval processes of a safe treatment before it can be marketed must be reformed to fit patients’ needs. Without this epilepsy treatment will remain in the dark ages of using oral medications that have negative side effects.

Not only is epilepsy treatment in the dark ages but it is misunderstood by the public, patients are discriminated against because of public ignorance about epilepsy, and affected persons live in tragedy.  Every five minutes a person is diagnosed with epilepsy.  Many patients are not successfully treated with oral medication(s).  A seizure kills brain cells, over time the chronic disease can permanently injure the brain, and patients are susceptible to death.

Epilepsy patients deserve the chance to live normal lives without seizures.  This can be accomplished if modern-day technical medical treatments are promoted by the federal government and not slowed down by lack of funding and/or use of red tape during study and/or FDA medical device approval processes.  Please support this petition to address the most common neurological disease.
