Phar­ma­cies go­ing pur­ple for a cause

Isis Town and Country - - News -

GIN GIN Phar­macy will go pur­ple next Thurs­day for Pur­ple Day for Epilepsy.

For the last four years, a Coral Coast Phar­ma­cies store has taken out the num­ber one spot in Queens­land for the Pur­ple Phar­macy Pro­mo­tion.

Gin Gin is one of those stores, but they will face tough com­pe­ti­tion to take top spot.

Pre­vi­ous win­ner Bur­rum Street Phar­macy will be a strong con­tender, but this year ri­val stores East­side, West Bund­aberg and Plaza will be vy­ing for the ti­tle.

Epilepsy is the most com­mon se­ri­ous brain dis­or­der and the stigma, dis­crim­i­na­tion and mis­con­cep­tions about epilepsy can be worse than the con­di­tion it­self.

Coral Coast Phar­ma­cies are go­ing pur­ple to help Epilepsy Queens­land raise aware­ness of epilepsy in the com­mu­nity, and by sell­ing mer­chan­dise and dis­play­ing in­for­ma­tion.

Ev­ery­one can help by sim­ply be­ing aware of what to do if some­one near you has a seizure or do­nate.
