Did you know - That epilepsy is one of the most common disorders out there, and is also one of the most under funded as far as research and other resources?http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2009/04/10/a-storm-in-the-brain.html
We've been trying to get recognition from places like Google for years, but we keep getting ignored. We've even been asking for Google to support Epilepsy Awareness via a Google doodle, but can't seem to get any attention to it. ("We" being the Epilepsy Foundation, people living with epilepsy such as myself, and other non-profit organizations.)http://www.change.org/petitions/create-a-google-doodle-for-epilepsy-awareness
It's funny how organizations and businesses help certain charities so much, but completely ignore other causes.
Cancer has MANY awareness months for different cancers. Each has it's own color as well. Epilepsy has one month of awareness and one color - November, and purple - and it gets hardly ANY attention even then. (Partly because prostate CANCER
shares not only our month, but also our color!)
