Epilepsy awareness attracts attention
With breast cancer awareness month not too long behind us, it is important to create awareness for other illnesses as well. Awareness months can be beneficial since they give us a better understanding and more of an opportunity to help those in need.
This month’s number is: Epilepsy.
Epilepsy is a condition in the brain that plagues its victims with repeated seizures over a period of time. “A lot of people don’t understand what epilepsy is. That it’s a condition of the brain, and we’re just trying to bring awareness to it” a person in charge of the event said.
Dan Martini of Phi Theta Kappa expressed positive views in turn out saying “We’ve had a great number of students come to find out about us.” PTK also funded the event. The event sold purple hair extensions and dye to support Epilepsy awareness. After all breast cancer has pink hair, now Epilepsy has purple.
PTK also had a variety of pamphlets and flyers that contained what procedures to take in case anyone experiences an epileptic seizure.
Show your support today, dye your hair and tell a friend.
