The Jon Denzer Bear Hug Foundation announces the Epilepsy Safety Net Program. Under the Program, services or financial assistance will be awarded to young adults ages 18-30 that demonstrate an impact to the quality of their lives as a result of living with Epilepsy. We seek candidates who lack a financial, community or emotional support system or “safety net”.


    • The recipient will be 18 years or older up to 30 years
    • The recipient will have been diagnosed with epilepsy
    • The recipient will provide proof of need of financial assistance or a service as a result of the impacts of epilepsy
    • They will demonstrate that they are complying with Medical recommendations that mitigate seizure triggers such as; taking prescribed medicine in accordance with Doctors instruction, no drug use or alcohol abuse, getting enough sleep, limiting caffeine
    • Applications may be received throughout the year and monthly assistance may be granted to the candidate.
