because a hug is sometimes the most valuable gift...

In November, 2018, Epilepsy Durham Region launched a new, comprehensive, local Epilepsy Clinic in Durham Region. Encompassed in this initiative is our Clinic to Community program which ensures that individuals and their families living with epilepsy receive the education and support that they need to be partners in their healthcare plan. 


To preserve our local epilepsy programming, Clinic to Community, and the Epilepsy Clinic, we have set a goal of raising $500,000, and we're almost there! Our Task Force, alongside amazing community partners, have raised $477,000 to date...


...but we need your help




In partnership with our community and in an act of compassion, Epilepsy Durham Region is putting our comfort toy, Lora the Lavender Labrador, in the hands of First Responders to help comfort those in traumatic situations.
In disaster and emergencies our First Responders are the first people on the scene when an emergency strikes – when the need arises, Epilepsy Durham Region would like to help our First Responders by providing some comfort.


We have made available 1900 plush toys to be distributed to First Responders throughout Durham Region - this is where you join us...
