A cooler blend of culture

Put on a pair of purple laces and help a good cause

Epilepsy is the second most common neurological condition to affect the brain. In Western Australia alone, more than 26,000 people have active epilepsy, with about 1,400 new patients presenting with a seizure each year.

Throughout the month of September, Epilepsy WA is calling on the community to help raise funds and to lift the stigma associated with epilepsy by purchasing and wearing purple laces.

‘Purple Laces Month’ also aims to debunk myths about epilepsy – a commonly misunderstood condition. Did you know, for example, that epilepsy is a condition of the brain, not a mental illness, and that it can affect anyone at any age.

Help increase community awareness, reduce stigma and provide support for those living with epilepsy… and look pretty hip doing it.

Laces for a good cause are just $5 a pair. For more information visit www.epilepsywa.asn.au.  Antonino Tati
