Founded by Shena and Trysten Pearson, Gulf Coast Epilepsy Alliance (GCEA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides direct services to individuals with seizure disorders and those touched by epilepsy in the Texas Gulf Coast.
After Trysten's diagnosis of epilepsy at age 12, a five-year partnership with the Epilepsy Foundation Texas – Houston/Dallas-Fort Worth/West Texas, advocating for the passage of Sam's Law for Texas Schools, raising SUDEP awareness in the New York Times newspaper, and receiving rank of Eagle with the Boy Scouts of America, Trysten established GCEA to support and improve the quality of life for people with epilepsy in Texas.
GCEA's vision is to achieve a society where no person's life is limited by epilepsy.
GCEA's mission is committed to working for and meeting the needs of people with epilepsy, their families, and their caregivers in the Gulf Coast counties of Texas.
GCEA's aim is to maintain existing services and activities, while also developing in new directions to ensure we continue to meet the needs of people with epilepsy, their families, and their caregivers in the Gulf Coast areas of Texas.
