2014 /CNW/ The Canadian Epilepsy Alliance (CEA) is thrilled to announce the launch of a new comic series designed to educate children about the most common neurological disorder in Canada, epilepsy. The Medikidz Explain Epilepsy comic series tells a fictional story based on the experiences of 14 year old Jack, who is navigating middle school while living with epilepsy."Despite the fact that epilepsy affects 1 in 100 Canadians, there is still so much misinformation and lack of awareness out there," says Gail Dempsey, President of the Canadian Epilepsy Alliance.The Nike Tracksuit Limited Edition

"This is a great tool to educate not only those children living with the condition and their peers, but their parents too."Marianne Cizmar Shapiro explains how challenging it was for her son Adam, when we was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 12, "this is difficult stuff for even parents to grasp and the comic has a way of engaging children with easy to understand text and colourful illustrations. In our situation, Adam went from a relatively average childhood to suddenly being coddled and protected, the comic book would have been a great tool to help explain what was happening this will be an important tool for children just like Adam who are learning about epilepsy."Medikidz was founded by Dr. Kim Chilman Blair and Dr Kate Hersov whom, after working in paediatrics, became frustrated by the lack of engaging education for their young patients. During their time as doctors, they were unable to provide children with resources to help educate them about their new diagnoses or medicines in their language, Nike Hoodies For Girls White at their level.Eisai Limited is the official partner for the MediKidz Explain Epilepsy comic series.Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that can produce brief disturbances in the normal electrical functions of the brain.
