Congratulations to our friend, Leigh Goldie, for a successful event to support Epilepsy awareness. She hosted a “Purple Day of Bowling”, bringing friends, families, and supporters together for a night of fun.
Over 2.2 million people living in the United States have Epilepsy, half of them are children. Epilepsy cannot be cured. At least 1 million people in the United States have uncontrolled Epilepsy. We still need more research, better treatments, and most important, we need a cure!
There are more than twice as many people with Epilepsy in the United States than the number of people with cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, and cystic fibrosis combined.
The message on the cups that were distributed, EMPOWERING EPILEPSY – CHANGE THE CONVERSATION, says it all. We need to change the stigma of those who live with Epilepsy, end the suffering, and empower those individuals to get the help that they need.
Leigh, thank you again for all that you are doing.
