The personal injury attorneys at KaplunMarx are thrilled to be hosting the second year for our $1000 Living with Epilepsy Scholarship. We want to support those whose lives are affected by epilepsy and help spread awareness about this disease.
This $1,000 scholarship is available to a student who has been diagnosed or whose family member, friend, or another individual they are close to, has been diagnosed with epilepsy or another seizure disorder.
We want to hear how your diagnosis has affected your life, whether that is having the responsibility to care for someone with epilepsy or how you’ve had to learn to take care of yourself. Have there been instances where the disease has pushed you to succeed rather than hindered you? What obstacles have you overcome? Are there any important moments in your life that have occurred because of your diagnosis? Tell us your story.
Ethan is currently a senior at Montclair High School with a deep interest in Math, Physics and Computer Science. In his spare time, he enjoys working on maker projects, playing chess, and biking. Ethan lives in Montclair, NJ with his parents, sister, dog, two cats, and giant fish. He is looking forward to starting college this Fall and majoring in Computer Science or Computer Engineering.
Reaction statement: It is estimated that epilepsy affects more people than autism spectrum disorder, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and Parkinson’s combined, and yet it is rarely talked about. For one-third of people living with epilepsy, seizures continue despite treatment and there is no cure. I’m very grateful to KaplunMarx for this generous scholarship and for raising awareness of epilepsy.
The team at KaplunMarx is passionate about helping to find a cure for this difficult disease. We hope to bring together our community and raise awareness, as well as funds for the local epilepsy community. Check out some of the programs and events we have supported through the years.
