A Google Doodle For Epilepsy Awareness

This petition had 2,441 supporters

Epilepsy affects more than 500,000 people in the UK. This means almost 1 in 100 people has the condition. Epilepsy usually begins during childhood, although it can start at any age. Epilepsy also affects over 65,000,000 people worldwide! and causes 1000 deaths in the UK alone

We’re asking Google to create a google doodle for their homepage. It would raise awareness of the condition which still has so much stigma attatched because people dont know about it as much as other conditions. Millions of people use google every day and this would reach out to people much more than any Epilepsy charity could ever hope to do. 

We are asking google to have a Epilepsy google doodle on March 26th which is Purple Day and November 1st The first day of Epilepsy Awareness Month

For the millions of people worldwide who suffer from Epilepsy, it would show them they are not alone and that google is aware.
