Tomorrow is Purple Day – The Global Day of Epilepsy Awareness – The day where everyone is asked to “Start Wearing Purple”, as Gogol Bordello would say. Please support Purple Day and Gemma’s Ray of Hope by wearing an item of purple clothing tomorrow to work, school, or wherever you’re going. If you’re not sure what epilepsy or SUDEP (sudden unexpected death of epilepsy) is, then there is some information here for your reading. Many people believe that epilepsy is triggered by flashing lights, although only 5% of people with epilepsy are photosensitive.
Get your friends, family and if you like, complete strangers involved. 26th March is Purple Day!
