Photograph title: Support EPILEPSY Awareness
We created a new category just for this picture! This young lady created a display about epilepsy and Purple Day. In her display she states: “Having seizures can create many challenges. I’m determined to fight back and enjoy life. And to raise more awareness about the condition. Wear purple on March 26th.”
