Today is Epilepsy Awareness Day. Today Luke and I are sporting our purple shirts in honor of our niece & cousin, Olivia, who is four and a half months younger than Luke. You can read her story at Tastes Like Dandelion.
Did you know…
an estimated 50 million people suffer from epilepsy? That’s 1% of the world’s population!
epilepsy is not a mental disorder, but a spectrum of neurological disorders? It’s a condition of the brain, causing seizures.
in approximately half of the epilepsy cases, the cause is unknown?
most people with epilepsy go on to live absolutely normal lives.
We love you, Livvie!
