Purple Reign

Today (“purple day”) is national epilepsy awareness day, so I wanted to shine a light on a subject that I have seen effect one of my close friends. According to the World Health Organization, nearly 50 million people around the world live with epilepsy.  While it is not contagious, and in many cases, there is no known cause for the condition, sometimes the reason is due to disease or injury such as stroke or infection. Epilepsy is a life changing condition. Imagine not being able to drive or go to school or work because there is a high chance you will have a seizure(s)? It starts to take over your life. The first thing you think of when you wake up and the last thing you think of before you go to sleep. I have been praying for months now and will continue to pray that doctors will find a cause to my friends’ seizures and they can cure him of this terrible disease. Wear purple today to show your support and prayers are always welcome ❤
