Did you know that epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders in the world, affecting over 50 million people ? So many people have the condition yet so few of us take the time to understand it. Or the people who live with it.
And this is where Purple Day comes in, the day of Epilepsy awareness! It is a day where people with epilepsy, or those with 'epileptic' famy members can spread the word about the condition, teaching others about epilepsy and it's many facets.
Epilepsy is not a disease, and Purple Day is all about helping people to understand this, and to get people to support people with epilepsy and other neurological conditions.
Be a voice!
I will be posting various little factoids over the next few days, so watch this space!!!
