National Epilepsy Awareness Day (aka, Purple Day) is happening on Tuesday 26 March.
People up and down the country are taking part with bake sales, swimathons, dressing in purple, cycling in purple, dancing in purple, painting their faces purple... In fact, there are no limits to the possibilities!
Every year we see hundreds of you do your bit to support children and young adults living with the effects of epilepsy, and the money you raise makes a huge different in improving young lives. The facts are;
- There are more children in the UK with epilepsy than with diabetes.
- About 40% of young people with epilepsy suffer from one or more mental health conditions.
- 95% of children with epilepsy struggle with one or more aspect of school life and learning.
But it's not all bad news;
- 70% of the population could be seizure free with the right treatment.
With your help, more children can live seizure-free lives.
