Hey friends! I wanted to remind that the first EVER International Epilepsy Day is happening this coming Monday (February 9th) around the world.
We are partnering with the International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE) to raise awareness everywhere and we are asking as many people as possible to join us with a social media campaign.
It’s easy to take part: Print out the attachment (or make your own sign with#EpilepsyDay on it), take a selfie or picture in your town or city and write where you’re from. Post it on your social media pages, make sure you hashtag #epilepsyday and share, share, share. You can just send the photo back to me and I’ll post it on our social media pages. And remember your friends, family and co-workers can participate, too! Anyone can raise awareness!!
I suffer from Epilepsy myself but did you know that over 65 million people in the world have Epilepsy (that’s double those living with HIV and AIDS) and yet so many people don’t know what it is or have misconceptions about the disorder. In developing regions the stigma and fears related to the disorder are heartbreaking and debilitating. Awareness and education are the key!
