Epilepsy is a chronic disorder that causes unprovoked, recurrent seizures. A seizure is a sudden rush of electrical activity in the brain.
A mild seizure may be difficult to recognize. It can last a few seconds during which you lack awareness.
Stronger seizures can cause spasms and uncontrollable muscle twitches, and can last a few seconds to several minutes. During a stronger seizure, some people become confused or lose consciousness. Afterward you may have no memory of it happening.
Epilepsy is a fairly common neurological disorder that affects 65 million people around the world. In the United States, it affects about 3 million people.

History of the child
Matvei was an ordinary, healthy and cheerful baby. But once upon a time…at the age of 7 months… he had an epileptic attack.
Doctors have made the following diagnosis to Matvei — structural localized epilepsy. The boy has attacks up to 10 times a day and also another problems.
Since this moment the family has tried all possible treatment, but every day the disease progresses more and more…
Matvei has a chance to win against it in one of the German clinics. However medical check-up and treatment in the Epilepsy Centre Bethel cost too much for Matvei’s family: 42 000EUR.
But Matvei and his family don’t lose hope and faith in humanity!
