In February 2018, the Seize Your Adventure project was born, an online magazine of outdoor adventures and activities whose protagonists are people affected by epilepsy.
The name Seize Your Adventure plays with the different meanings of the English word “seize”, which means “to take advantage”, “to take advantage”, “to take advantage”, “to understand”… But also “convulsion”. The play on words associated with everything that revolves around the concept of “adventure” gives a glimpse of the nature of this interesting project.
The magazine emanates optimism, adrenaline, youth and freshness from a community without fear of its challenges. The project has three aims: to share adventure stories of people who don’t let epilepsy mark their lives; to encourage others to explore their own limits; and to raise awareness of epilepsy in all its forms, in order to de-stigmatize the disease.

The adventures that are told are various and different, each one having its own definition of “adventure”. For example, the story of Jade and its beginnings with the ketogenic diet, or how Joe managed to reach the top of the highest peak in the United Kingdom, or the story of Francesca and her “Camino de Santiago”…. Francesca caught herself talking about her illness with the rest of the pilgrims and an anecdote that tells the tale is that she met another pilgrim, also with epilepsy!
On the website there are also interviews with athletes with epilepsy and articles related to epilepsy and how to embark on an adventure.
As a team at MJN Neuroserveis, we were delighted to discover this initiative, because of the energy it transmits and the common good it brings. We wish Seize Your Adventure a lot of luck in this project which is also an adventure, which we will continue to follow with enthusiasm.
