Online Memorial Day, Wednesday 10th May, is an opportunity to remember all those who have died from epilepsy, across our social media platforms.
Now in its second year, SUDEP Action launched this special day enabling the bereaved community to connect around the world.
This year’s 2017 event was successful with over 4,000 interactions taking place on SUDEP Action’s Facebook and Twitter posts. Interactions can be anything from – a like, share, click or retweet.
A special video slideshow created (using a few of the images shown here) was viewed 11,000 times alone.
What is also important is that s number of valuable connections were made with newly bereaved families, who had heard about the event too.
How you can get involved in next year's event
SUDEP Action will be sharing posts on social media platforms throughout the day, as well as before and after. Hundreds of bereaved families will join in by sharing photos, poems, memories and journeys of their lost loved ones.
