Today is World Encephalitis Day

World Encephalitis Day is February, 22, each year – just remember 222. This is a day for all of us affected by encephalitis, whether we are patients, family members, doctors, researchers, or caregivers, to come together and talk about our experiences with brain inflammation and the many forms it takes. While we at the Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance focus on providing information and care for those suffering specifically from Autoimmune Encephalitis, we also share in this day with all of those afflicted by any form of encephalitis. This movement was created by the Encephalitis Society of England and we wish them continued success in spreading understanding about encephalitis in all of its forms. On this day, let us remember those who have passed, offer thoughts and prayers to those who still suffer, and celebrate those who are recovering. For more information about World Encephalitis Day or on the Encephalitis Society please visit http://www.encephalitis.info/ .

We, at the Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance, work hard to promote collaboration to improve care, find a cure, and create community so that no one faces autoimmune encephalitis alone. Your support makes all of these things possible. If you would like to contribute to our mission of alleviating suffering please visit our donation page at Donations. Our great thanks for your generosity as we endeavor to end this disease.
