Yeah, Clinton's correct. There is also no urgency in funding even though people die from Epilepsy more frequently than they do from AIDS each year in the United States.
One of the things I know we need is a human face. If we are going to engender support for Epilepsy research and awareness, we will need a very public person to stand out and up on our behalf.
I think we should collectively make a list of persons we think might make excellent spokespersons for us at a national level. Someone with E. would be best, I think, but I could be wrong...
1. Bill Clinton
2. Neil Young
3. George Clooney
4. Senator John McCain
5. Greg Grunberg
6. Oprah Winfrey
OK---I have run dry of ideas, but if you can suggest some others, I will add them in. So far on the list, the only person with E. is Neil Young.
