Picture a Cure for Purple Day: Deadline Extended

Picture a Cure Do you sometimes feel like epilepsy is invisible even though it affects every part of your life? You are not alone.

Deadline Extended to March 21

In preparation for Purple Day, Living Well With Epilepsy is gathering photos of one day of treatment from readers all over the world. We have extended the photo submission deadline to March 21. We’ve also implemented a form which will allow you to send in two photos at one time.

Since epilepsy is invisible, unless a seizure is happening, it is difficult to show. And let’s face it our society needs that visual impact. This project is a way to remind people that epilepsy is real and it does impact more than 65Million people worldwide.

It is time to show the world the diverse ways epilepsy is being handled. In some cases, the treatment is working. In others (25-30% according to the NINDS), treatment is not as successful.

Do any of the following sound familiar:

  • I take a handful of medication every day
  • I follow the ketogenic diet
  • I run on the treadmill to stay seizure free
  • I take vitamin D because I’m more prone to osteoporosis
  • I get lots of sleep, sometimes more than I’d like
  • I have regular EEGs

If yes, then take a picture. Use your phone or a camera or your ipad. Just take the picture and send it in using the form below.
