FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- An organization called Briezy's Bunch set up a walk in the zoo before their awareness Expo in Franke Park.
The awareness expo consisted of pharmaceutical, non-pharmaceutical, and some neurology offices to provide resources to people who have loved ones that have epilepsy at no cost.
The CEO and president of Briezy's Bunch, April Krowel, wants to educate more parents so they don't have to go through what she went through with expenses for her 3 year old daughter.
"A lot of times people with epilepsy don't have a lot of social support so we try to do the zoo for that and maybe get some social support for people in the area for people to bond over a similar issue," Krowel said.
The epilepsy society said around 87 people are diagnosed with epilepsy every day.
