Purple Day only 33 days way!
March 26th is Purple Day, a day dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy.
To promote this day people are encouraged to wear purple and host events and activities in support of epilepsy awareness around the world. We are proud to launch our new corporate initiative – & 'Be a Kid for a Kid'.
It's hard to believe we are sitting down to write a wrap up for 2015. It seems like a daunting task to properly encompass all of the notable moments of the past year, one in which we are not really sure where to begin.
With the Epic Climb of the Grand Canyon behind us in 2014, Epilepsy Durham Region was determined to keep the momentum moving in to 2015, and hit the ground running. 2015 would be a year of transformation, not just for our organization, but also for Epilepsy itself.
If you have Epilepsy and have lost your health card, your mind clouded due to multiple seizures, how difficult could it be to obtain a new health card?
The journey below follows an experience I had last week when helping a woman struggling with Epilepsy.
If you have spent more than five minutes with me, you have probably figured out that summer is by far my favourite time of the year – longer days and a warm breeze, the sound of kids playing in the park midday, having to eat your ice cream just fast enough that it doesn't melt. As much as it pains me to admit it, the end of summer is fast approaching. It feels like I blinked and three months passed by.
Being a student, a common question that I receive a lot is "Where are you working for the summer?" This question is common and dreaded by many students but not to me. In fact, I can't wait to answer that question, I can barely hold in my excitement when I hear it. I have had the privilege to be the Summer Student for Epilepsy Durham Region for 2 summers now and wow I cannot be more thankful.
