From Nagasaki, here’s some news about Purple Day, held last month!

On March 25th (Sunday), for the first time in Nagasaki (entrance hall of Nagasaki Prefectural Government), Purple Day was held! The event was organized by the Nagasaki Epilepsy Group.

Although it was the first time, there was a clear feeling of excitement in the air. The more than 200 in attendance came from both inside and outside the prefecture, and included patients as well as their families, and others.

In the forum of open lectures for the civic audience, there was one themed “Let’s Learn More About Epilepsy!”, with participants that included doctors, social workers, psychologists and others. It was fun and beneficial to get a better handle on epilepsy’s true importance.

In addition, top Japan league J1 football (soccer) club, V-Varen Nagasaki’s Manager Takagi Takuya communicated with Purple Day Nagasaki, conveying special support. It is a heartwarming and cheerful message to be seen on the team’s website (https://www.v-varen.com/news/63134.html). Though it is in Japanese, pictures are to be seen!!

To make this year’s Purple Day Nagasaki even more whole, on March 26 Mount Inasa’s Radio Tower in Nagasaki was lit up in beautiful and powerful Purple!
Together with the patients who have epilepsy and those who support those that do, the Nagasaki Epilepsy Group will continue with various activities, including future Purple Days!

To everyone of the Nagasaki Epilepsy Group, let’s continue to work together with passion!
