Epilepsy Action Australia is passionate about raising epilepsy awareness across Australia.
Events like E-Tea, Art for Epilepsy and Purple Day often gain interest from media (newspapers, radio and sometimes TV) and we are asked to provide stories from people with epilepsy and their families to show the public the impact it has on those affected.
We also use people’s stories to fundraise for Epilepsy Action so that we can continue to support people living with epilepsy across Australia.
If you are willing to share your story please fill in the boxes below and tell us a little about yourself or your family. If there is an opportunity to share your story with others we will be sure to let you know!
If you have any questions or concerns, please call our team on 1300 37 45 37.

I agree these quotations, photographs or visual footage can be used by Epilepsy Action Australia for two years.
