There are 60,000 Minnesotans with epilepsy. That's why Tammy Sammon, of St. Paul, works with the Epilepsy Foundation and was helping out Aug. 8 during the third annual Stroll for Epilepsy event at the Rochester Community and Technical College Sports Center.

"There are more than 20 kinds of epilepsy, and many cases are undiagnosed," Sammon said. "Our mission is to raise awareness. People of all ages are vulnerable. It affects people of all ages, in fact 1 in 26 people will develop epilepsy at some point in their lives. Epilepsy is terrifically underfunded, and we are doing all we can to change that."
