Epilepsy is a neurological disorder marked by sudden recurrent episodes of sensory disturbance, loss of consciousness, or convulsions, associated with abnormal electrical activity in the brain. It is a brain disorder that is common and there are several different types of epilepsy out in the world.

 In the United States 200,000 people are diagnosed with epilepsy each year, and one out of 26 Americans get epilepsy. Sixty-five million people around the world have epilepsy.

Epilepsy is not contagious. Six out of ten people with epilepsy don’t know the causes of their seizures. So, this November wear purple and show your support to the 65 million people out there managing this disorder. Major landmarks across the country are lighting up purple for epilepsy during this month. Let’s light it up purple, Redbank!
