Your older VIP siblings may feel like nobody else their age has to cope with the kinds of challenges they do having a brother or sister with a rare epilepsy. Designed to reassure your VIP sibling that their thoughts and feelings are valid, this special VIP Sibling Kit also provides encouragement and insight from other rare epilepsy siblings. Here’s a peek at what’s included in this kit-by-mail:

What families are saying about the kits...



Christal, Zachary and Yanni's mom, shares:


"Thank you for making Zachary feel special. He has already used his bracelet to let me know that he was feeling a little down and needed my attention. We read the story and he can relate so well to the sibling in the book. The coping strategies are also really helpful.  


I think his smile says it all :)."
