From Ron and the team at the Purple Pumpkin Project: “All we are asking is to please color one of your Halloween Pumpkins Purple! Maybe have some “Seizure smart” info on hand and share your story with anyone that will listen!”
Why does it matter?
The prevalence and mortality statistics for epilepsy are comparable to those of breast cancer. More importantly, the death toll resulting from epilepsy and seizure-related causes this past year, was higher than the number of deaths resulting from AIDS-related causes at the height of the AIDS crisis.So enough pink. It’s time for purple to be the color of the day.
Let us know if you painted your pumpkin too!
