VIP siblings are siblings who have a brother or sister with a rare epilepsy. They are often unselfish, dedicated, and demonstrate an amazing ability to see beyond the challenges, exhibiting understanding and compassion beyond their years.

But they need our support.

That’s why we collaborated with 10 dedicated patient organizations of the rare epilepsy community to create three very special kits, useful forms, digital downloads, and much more. Jump in and start exploring or scroll down to learn more about the VIP Sibling Project.

When our son was diagnosed with a rare epilepsy, his three older brothers were greatly impacted. I searched for resources and support for them, but the local sibling events were difficult to fit into our schedule. The VIP kit is JUST what I needed: Information for me to better understand the disease and impact on the family, as well as tools to allow my children to process on their own.a rare epilepsy parent
