The month of March has been a sea of purple! On March 26th, 50 million people worldwide stood united to raise awareness of the third most common neurological condition. As I prepare this final blog of the month I'm deeply moved by the warmth and support our community has shown; for many years I have told families and people living with Epilepsy that they are not alone, but for the first time in 12 years I truly believe that we belong.
There is Excitement in the Air #EPICchallenge
Imagine a five year old waiting for their birthday and their special birthday party –that's exactly how I feel about our upcoming National Epilepsy Awareness Day Campaigns. PURPLE DAY!!! You can feel the excitement and an epic challenge is in the air with only 1 more day until our National Epilepsy Awareness day, March 26th. There is a pulse in the air like no other I've felt. Our fax machine has been vibrating with registration forms from schools registering to participate in our celebrations, our phones are ringing nonstop and so many of you have dropped by to pick up Purple Day materials for your office. Not to mention, thousands of pancakes flipped and consumed last month to kick off Epilepsy Awareness Month. "Purple Day" 2015 continues to be a day of anticipation as the nation turns purple.
