Nearly 3 million people in the United States live with epilepsy and 1 in 26 people will develop epilepsy in their lifetime. To raise awareness and funds for epilepsy to provide assistance to those in need, Epilepsy Association of Central Florida has created EpilepsyStore.com as the first online retail marketplace to “Shop Purple for a Purpose™” and bring epilepsy out of the darkness.
