We will be sharing our stories, pictures, and our Purple hearts.
As Purple is the color of Epilepsy, won't you join us on this Purple Day as we share all things purple and all things Epilepsy. It is our hope to increase awareness, break down barriers, share our hearts, our stories, our hopes and yes, there may even be a little bit of sadness.
As you know, Rhett lives with Epilepsy. He is fortunate right now to being doing very well. The twice daily meds are keeping the Seizure Monsters at bay....barely...but still at bay. Knowing Rhett, you know the journey he has travelled in his 5yrs. We are very grateful that Rhett's seizures are under control, but that was not always the case and is not reality for others, many others.
Did you know that 1/3 of people with Epilepsy live with uncontrolled seizures? Are you aware that many people do not know what to do if a person seizes? Or the different types of seizures... what they look like? If you are local to southern Alberta, please visit the Be Like Jelly link on my blog. There is much education to do!
So please, for Rhett and all our Epilepsy Journey Friends, stand tall and recognize Purple Day with us.

3. Wear purple on Tuesday. Take a picture and email someone or put it on Facebook that we’re standing together. When you wear purple make sure you able to tell people why. I’ll be posting one Epilespy fact each day until Tuesday – I’d love for you to add yours in the comments.
