Call to sup­port Pur­ple Day

Pilbara News - - Opinion -

More than 800,000 Aus­tralians will be af­fected by epilepsy in their life­time. Yet sadly, be­cause of so­cial stigma and mis­con­cep­tions, many peo­ple do not dis­close their con­di­tion.

March 26 is Pur­ple Day, a grass­roots ef­fort ded­i­cated to in­creas­ing epilepsy aware­ness world­wide.

As the largest na­tional provider of sup­port ser­vices to chil­dren and adults with epilepsy across Aus­tralia, I would like to en­cour­age your com­mu­nity to sup­port Pur­ple Day by mak­ing a do­na­tion or get­ting in­volved at epilepsy.org.au. Carol Ire­land Epilepsy Ac­tion Aus­tralia
