Epilepsy Action Australia is proud to acknowledge the generosity of the following supporters who have helped make MyEpilepsyKey a reality.

Lotterywest, established in 1932, runs the lottery in Western Australia. It held its first lottery and made its first grants distribution in March 1933. Lotterywest is a fully privately owned not-for-profit organisation. With the generous support of Lotterywest, Epilepsy Action Australia has undertaken various projects for Western Australians impacted by epilepsy, such as therapeutic residential programs for children and youth with epilepsy and their families. Recently Lotterywest made a significant gift, which enables us to launch ‘MyEpilepsyKey’ in WA.
UCB is a global biopharmaceutical company based in Brussels, Belgium with a focus on neurology and immunology. They have more than 7,500 people in all four corners of the globe, and are inspired by patients and driven by science. Everything they do starts with one simple question: “How can we create more value for people living with severe diseases?”.
The key element of their evolution is to focus on the delivery of increased patient value. There is no such thing as an “average patient”. They aim to use all the tools, channels and scientific advances at their disposal to develop a better understanding of the various expressions of a disease and embed the real needs of specific patient populations in their science and innovation process.
Better understanding the reality of patients living with neurological and immunological disorders enables them to take a more holistic approach to care, ensuring that ultimately the right drug and the right care reaches the right patients in order for them to live the lives they choose.

Brien’s Winther, PANDORA Australia President comments, “Our decision to support Epilepsy Action Australia was initially sparked when we became aware of the unanticipated funding shortfall they faced for Purple Day earlier this year. Then when the serious implications of epilepsy touched the Pandora team, we felt compelled to contribute to the MyEpilepsyKey initiative in a bid to help make the lives of those impacted by epilepsy safer and happier.”
The John and Mary McAlister Howden Charitable Trust
