Purple ribbons take over Washington DC

You may have noticed the purple ribbons now gracing the background on Living Well With Epilepsy. The ribbons went up just in time for Purple Day which, judging by the buzz across social media outlets, was a great success.

The ribbons will stay up all week through Saturday, March 31 when families from across the country will join together in Washington DC for the 6th Annual National Walk for Epilepsy. There is still time to participate. You can walk. You can donate. You can check out the pictures. Or you can spread the word.

Below are photos taken by Bryan Farley, an amazing photographer, who also happens to have epilepsy. He was kind enough to share a few images from last year’s walk here.
