Did you know that more people suffer from epilepsy than multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and Parkinson’s Disease COMBINED, but epilepsy funding is less than half of any one of them? When 1 in 26 of us will develop epilepsy, why is that? Embarrassment? Fear?
The more we talk about epilepsy, the more we break down the stigma surrounding the disease. And the more we raise awareness, the more we raise the demand for more funding for research.
So wear your purple proudly on March 26, have a lemonade stand to enlighten others, help us raise money for local research, or all of the above.
