2012 Epilepsy Foundation VIP Heroes of Epilepsy Photography

My Featured Blog is called "If I Talk About It, Will You Listen?"


For the last year, I started all my posts with the first two words "If I." I developed the idea during last year's walk when I suspected that some people emphasized talking without interacting. As difficult as it is to talk about it, listening is difficult, especially to the reasons behind the silence.  

Talking does not necessarily heal, but denial rarely helps. There is power in being heard. Sometimes, we can become more healthy by talking about it and by knowing others are talking for us.


The evening before the 6th Annual National Walk for Epilepsy, EFA honored Heroes of Epilepsy at the National Museum for Women in the Arts. Eisai, the pharmaceutical company, sponsored the event. Two people were acknowledged for moving us forward.  Do you know anyone in the slideshow?


You can also view my blog at bryanfarleyphotography.com.  Feel free to post at my blog too. I would like to add links to everyone who attended. There were many people at the event who help keep us going. I would like to talk about them too.

Thanks Dawn for commenting 

(And Alastair too)

There were a good few days in DC. I did not stay for everything, but everything I saw inspired me. Next year, The Epilepsy Foundation will probably publicize their weekly events better. There was an entire week of activities.

This is so exciting to see so many people get together and bond in such a way to help fight against the cure for epilepsy. All of these people are heroes in my eyes.

Great to know you were there, but bummed that we did not meet! Such a lost opportunity. Next year, let's make sure we connect.

I was at the walk for the first time and took some pics but my kids enjoyed it more than I did. I would like to meet more ppl my age in my area to be able. I loved the photos.


Thanks for posting.

I love the pic of you and the pics from the museum! Looks like you had a amazing time at the event! I'm glad the two people were acknowledged! I love paintings of the women and the architecture! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Katrina and Jeff. Soon I will post photos from the walk. There are so many people who meet each other online and at the event... but we don't see each other together. 

Would love to make it a huge family event. all the families!

Thanks to everyone who has read and commented on my blog that is included on the post above. There were so many other people who help our community and it is good for them to know that we support them.

I would have loved to make it to the walk as a family event ... maybe next year we can plan for it! Loved the photos Bryan, and your thoughtful way of spreading awareness!
