I will be keeping this post at the top of my blog for November so make sure you scroll down to see new posts. Thanks!
Some of you may not know November is Epilepsy Awareness Month. My daughter Meghan (otherwise known here as Meggers) is six years old and has been living with Epilepsy since she was about a month old. Epilepsy does not define Meggers, it’s simply something she lives with and although there are some things we have to be cautious about, she can still live and function just as well as any other child her age. There are a lot of misconceptions about Epilepsy and I thought I’d post this short video to share a little information and clear up a few of them.
The National Walk for Epilepsy is on March 28th, 2009, in Washington D.C. and our family is participating so “Not another moment is lost to seizures”. For those of you who watch Heroes, Greg Grunberg is the National Chair and walks for his real-life hero – his son Jake who also lives with Epilepsy.
I’m asking my family, friends, fellow bloggers, and strangers to unite with us to fight the stigma, raise awareness and find a cure for Epilepsy by going to Meggers National Walk Page to donate $5 and/or by writing a post about Epilepsy Awareness on your blog and linking back here. Our family is greatful and thanks you for your support.
