Every March thousands of people across the globe come together for the internationally recognised Epilepsy awareness month. Yes, on 26th March the world will turn purple again as people raise awareness, understanding, and money for the condition.
And just as we did last year, the team at Alert-iT are getting involved. And we want you to as well.
Reasons For You To Get Involved
Despite more than 50 million people around the world living with epilepsy, 600,000 of those in the UK, epilepsy is not a widely understood condition. And this needs to change.
Epilepsy is a rare condition and even with today?s medical advances cannot be cured. With 87 people in Great Britain diagnosed with epilepsy every day, the condition is more common in children and older adults. It is therefore important that we all continue to raise awareness and help people understand that we should never stigmatise those who have may have epilepsy.
