A TALK on what it is like to live with epilepsy will be given today at the John Radcliffe Hospital.

Abigail Pine, who lives with the condition, will speak at the George Pickering Education Center from 5pm to 7pm.

She will chat about living with epilepsy, which is a common condition that affects the brain and causes frequent seizures.

The event will fall on Purple Day, which aims to increase worldwide awareness of epilepsy and dispel common myths and fears of the neurological disorder.

The event is open to everybody and is free to attend.
