Izla’s Epilepsy Crusade – Purple Day

March is Epilepsy Awareness Month and March 26 is Purple Day!
An estimated 65 million people worldwide currently live with epilepsy – in Australia alone approximately 250,000 people live with epilepsy with 34,000 people living with epilepsy in South Australia. One in 25 people will have epilepsy at some point in their life.

Throughout March, Epilepsy Australia and The Epilepsy Centre in SA are urging people around the country to end the stigma and discrimination of epilepsy and ‘GO PURPLE’, the international colour for epilepsy.

About The Epilepsy Centre (SA & NT):
The Epilepsy Centre employs Registered Nurses, Social Workers and Counsellors and is the only Epilepsy Organisation that caters to our SA clients face to face after diagnoses. Our major Hospitals will refer their clients on to us, we then organise Medical Care Plans as well as counselling. We offer ongoing support to the client and their families. We are self-funded and survive by our small Call Centre who tele-market lotteries and donation campaigns. We also tele-market for a fee on behalf of Orana, The Nature Foundation, Fresh FM and Guide Dogs of SA & NT to ensure revenue and wages are paid.
Epilepsy has never been recognised as an eligible disability in South Australia or the Northern Territory but it is in every other State of Australia.

The Epilepsy Centre is having a ‘Purple Picnic In The Park’ this Sunday March 20 at Bonython Park from 9.30 to 1.30pm – all welcome.
