Every March Epilepsy Action Australia holds Purple Day, our major fundraising event for the year. Unfortunately, this year it coincided with the shutdown of society with the COVID-19 virus. This meant a major funding shortfall which is threatening our services. But epilepsy didn’t stop for COVID. It marched ever onwards with increased need.

WHAT IS EPILEPSY?

Epilepsy is a common disease of the brain where there is a tendency to have recurrent seizures. It is a neurological disorder—not a form of mental illness—and seizures are caused by a temporary disruption of the electrical activity in the brain.

Approximately 3% to 3.5% of Australians will experience epilepsy at some point in their lives and over 250,000 Australians currently live with epilepsy.

Epilepsy can start at any age although it is more likely to be diagnosed in childhood or senior years.

There are many different types of epilepsies and people’s experiences differ greatly. Some types of epilepsy are age-limited and the person eventually stops having seizures. For others, epilepsy is a life-long condition
