- 1/100 people have a seizure disorder; 1/1000 people with epilepsy die every year of SUDEP.
- More deaths annually from epilepsy than breast cancer
- 3 million people in America alone have epilepsy; 200,000 new cases are diagnosed annually.
- Very little research dollars are used toward the study of SUDEP due to underreporting of deaths from SUDEP. A database is needed to support awareness and education.
