I am Grace Edwards, 11 year old founder of Talent for Epilepsy. I founded Talent for Epilepsy in 2009 when I was 7 years old, because I wanted to increase awareness of Epilepsy for my cousin. My cousin Logan is a person with Epilepsy. He is one of 3 million Americans affected by this irreversible neurological disorder. It is estimated that 1 in 26 people have epilepsy and that it is responsible for over 50,000 U.S. deaths each year.
Talent for Epilepsy is a registered 501c3 non-profit. We create family friendly events which advocate Epilepsy awareness in a fun and interactive way. Proceeds are donated to those who struggle with the epilepsy. Talent for Epilepsy's goal is to increase awareness and educate the public about seizure first aid and to break the stigma. We hope to eventually visit schools nationwide with an educational show and assembly. We also want to create a medical Grant program to help families with expenses related to Epilepsy.
Talent for Epilepsy is the official charity of the Miss Icon Pageant
The Icon Queens will represent Talent for Epilepsy and promote Epilepsy awareness throughout their reign.
Icon Queens will walk in our annual runway show, perform their talents in our talent show and will volunteer at our events throughout the year.
