In early 1999 I was hospitalized for four weeks with herpes simplex encephalitis. During that time my family searched the library and the Internet in vain, to learn more about encephalitis.
I created Encephalitis Global in late 1999, sharing information and support between encephalitis survivors, caregivers and loved ones. Encephalitis Global, Inc. now has over 1,500 members worldwide and exchanges more than 300 messages posted weekly, making it the most active encephalitis forum in the world.
Rare Disease Day 2012 is an international event held on February 29th 2012. In recognition of this Encephalitis Global has released FIGHTING ENCEPHALITIS, our entry in the American Academy of Neurology’s Neuro Film Festival 2012.
