March 26th 2011 is Purple Day, the day to show your support and wear something purple to show you care. Almost 1 in every 131 people in the UK has epilepsy which means more than 465,000 people with epilepsy in this country. There are more than 40 different types of epilepsy and it happens in all ages, races and social classes.
I know a wonderful little boy called Luke who has West's Syndrome which is an uncommon to rare epileptic disorder in infants. So today, I am wearing purple in honour of him and his family.
