A VERY purple November!

We want to thank so many people who helped us in spreading epilepsy awareness in November!! I received lots of pictures of people wearing purple... and also saw many many more that I didn't get pictures of! THANK YOU! This is how we create awareness! This is how we get people to pay attention and realize that epilepsy affects too many people! This is how we will get the cure we are praying for!

I had two wonderful opportunities in November to share a bit about epilepsy and how it has affected our lives. Our local Rotary club had me as a guest speaker one day and as a spin-off of that presentation I was asked to speak to the employees at my husband's company as well. The information was so well received and we were happy to send some donations to the Epilepsy Foundation of MN as a result! Our local grocery store recognized Epilepsy Awareness month by wearing purple ribbons and on Fridays, purple t-shirts!! This was a great way to really get PURPLE out in the eye of the public!!

Our family was featured in two separate newspaper articles as well! We were thrilled with the opportunity to get the word out. I'm not posting the articles on the blog, but if you are interested in reading them, please email me and I will email you a copy.

Luella ended the last week of November with two seizures but still had a pretty good month with only three seizures the entire month!! She has really been doing great! We thank you all for your continued prayers!

Well... I said I wanted pictures of people wearing purple for a special project... here it is! If you are reading this post as an email, you will need to go to the blog to watch the video or click the link below to watch on YouTube. Thanks again to all of you for sharing your pictures with me! I wish I had been able to take pictures of EVERYONE I saw wearing purple all month long... trust me, I noticed!! Your efforts are truly appreciated as well. Thanks for helping us create awareness in November!!
