Purple Day - March 26



Today is Supporting Epilepsy Day - and the day to wear something purple to show our support. Since I don't have any purple to wear - I give a purple flower to all you out there with epilepsy.

Epilepsy affects over 50 million people worldwide. That's more than multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and Parkinson's disease combined.


One of the bloggers I visit from time to time, has the disease, so this is especially to Michele. I have copied the information about epilepsy from here website.

Since my little dog has the same disease - this is also to him of course!

Vacker blomma i ett så mjukt ljus och tack för min del att du fortsatte kedjereaktionen. Du har ju dock dina alldeles egna orsaker också.
Har läst att epilepsi bland hundar är ca. 30 gånger vanligare än hos människor och i vissa raser t.o.m. 70 ggr vanligare.
En grym sjukdom och skrämmande för de nära och kära.
