Thanks to everyone who participated in the first ever Epilepsy Blog Relay. Together we have increased awareness of epilepsy stigma around the world.
In addition to the 30 bloggers who agreed to lead the charge (see their smiling faces above) there are many who have amplified the message by sharing on social media and spreading the word through their own networks. So, I’d like to take this opportunity to invite all the other supporters to get a little pat on the back.
Below you will find a Linky. This is a way for you to upload a thumbnail and a link to your own page, post or timeline. I encourage you to participate in the linky especially if you promoted the blog relay in any way.

Next Up: A November with impact
Living Well With Epilepsy is planning a similar relay on a much larger scale to mark epilepsy awareness month in November. We will use this as an opportunity to support those living with epilepsy in low and middle income nations through our partner on this project, Watsi.org. You may be aware that 80% of the more than 50 Million people living with epilepsy, live in low- and middle-income
countries (WHO, May 2015).
