We are inviting people with epilepsy, their families, and their caregivers to take One More Step towards living a fuller life. We also recognize the importance of the supporting epilepsy community: the organizations, scientists, and medical professionals that are raising awareness, conducting research, and providing support for people with epilepsy. As we sail around the world, we hope to create a global community of virtual shipmates that are all taking small steps, with the necessary guardrails in place, to improve their quality of life and the quality of life of someone with epilepsy.

- Define a realistic goal
- Identify challenges you’ll face working towards your goal (practical and medical)
