- educate women on things they can do to increase their chances of having a healthy baby
- provide comfort and information to families with a newborn in intensive care
- push for newborn screening and health insurance for all pregnant women and children
My son has epilepsy, and I will tell you it is very scary. Not something that many people are aware of, and that is why this little girl, and her goal, is so cool. Check out Cassidy Megan, the little girl who started Purple Day.
"Hi, my name is Cassidy Megan. I’m nine years old and I have epilepsy. I started Purple Day because I wanted to tell everyone about epilepsy, especially that all seizures are not the same and that people with epilepsy are ordinary people just like everyone else. I also wanted kids with epilepsy to know that they are not alone."
Show your support, wear your support, wear purple. We have made up some t-shirts to show our support. Each of my daughters, along with Daniel and my daughters friends and co-workers will all be wearing our purple shirts on the 26th of March. If you're interested in purchasing a shirt, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll get you hooked up!
