Epilepsy is a group of neurological disorders characterized by seizures or fits. Unfortunately, the cause of epilepsy is unknown, but it can develop from brain tumors, strokes plus drug and alcohol abuse. You may be surprised to learn that some of your favorite celebrities suffer from the disease. Although, the disorder can be very debilitating, these stars you never knew had epilepsy will inspire you to strive for success in spite of disabilities.
