Łucja Mucha - Purple Day, Every Day

Łucja Mucha

Age Diagnosed: 16
Location: Poland

For three years I am an epileptic and for that short period of time I am convinced that people’s awareness of epilepsy was very small. I want our disease to stop being a taboo topic, that is why I try to organize meetings with young people during which I talk about my life. I want to make them realize that we are the same as them and they do not have to fear us at all. The most important thing for me is to deepen our knowledge of our illness. I know that many people are hiding their illness and I hope they will not have to do it through the meetings that I organize. “Stay strong and wear purple “
