It's Purple Day People!

It's that time of the year again.

Here's an article about Purple Day if you'd like to read it.

But, if you don't Purple Day is a day to show your support for Epilepsy awareness.

It was started by a nine year old girl in Canada.

It is a global movement.

All you have to do is wear purple. Head to toe or maybe some nail polish.
It doesn't matter.

Purple Day matters to me because of Kiddo and me becoming aware of epilepsy.
She had childhood epilepsy.
That article explains more about what happened.

It was very scary and no one knows what the cause of epilepsy is.

It's not a fundraiser.
It's just an awareness kind of thing.

Like why are so many people wearing purple?
So, you check it out and learn some things you may not have known before.

  2. Thanks for the heads up, epilepsy can be so frustrating to deal with. Is kiddo doing better now?

  3. Yes, she is. There is always that chance that she could have another seizure, but brain waves are normal so odds are she won't.
