Purple Day

Cassidy's Purple Day Blog

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my Purple Day Blog

Cassidy Megan - Monday, November 11, 2013

I’m Cassidy Megan, I’m fourteen years old and I’m the founder of Purple Day.

Purple Day is an epilepsy awareness day which is a celebrated all around the whole world every year on March 26th.

There are many different types of seizures, for instance Tonic Clonic, Absence, Simple and Complex Partial, and many more. There are also so many treatments that can help control your seizures , but be sure to check with your doctor first about treatments or if you have any questions.

So I have decided to start this blog because I wanted to share my everyday life and to help show you that even if you have epilepsy you shouldn’t let it stop you from doing what you want to do.

The other reasons I wanted to do this blog are to share my ideas with you for Purple Day and to let you know what is going on with Purple Day and epilepsy awareness around the whole world. I want to talk about events that are coming up and what our Ambassadors and everyone are doing to help us educate the world.

I will also let you know how I am doing with my epilepsy and let you get to know me more as well.

Here is some information to help you to get to know me. I live in Nova Scotia Canada with my mom, dad and my big brother Chad. We have four pets. We have one dog (Dexter), two cats (Starfish and Bayley), and one bearded dragon named Odus. I’m a cheerleader, love to play music and to paint. I like to hang out with my friends and family. I’m in grade nine this year. I also love acting, and watching Days of Our Lives with my mom, and I LOVE Purple Day.

Oh, and I also have Complex Partial seizures.

Talk soon.

Love, Cassidy Megan <3
