International Epilepsy Day 2021

Monday, February 8, 2021
Everywhere

Every year on the second Monday of February people join together for International Epilepsy Day, to celebrate and highlight the problems faced by people with epilepsy, their families and carers.

Join CURE Epilepsy and the epilepsy community around the globe in raising funds for research and spreading epilepsy awareness on International Epilepsy Day.

Set Up a Facebook Fundraiser

Ask your Facebook friends help you fund a cure for epilepsy. Share why raising funds for epilepsy research is so critical and encourage people to donate! Set up your fundraiser now.

Spread Awareness on Social Media

3.4 million Americans and 65 million people worldwide are affected by epilepsy. One way to show your friends, family, and followers why finding a cure for epilepsy is so urgent is to share these images to your social media, or your own story, and use the hashtag #EpilepsyDay to add your voice to the conversation:
