Come on... grab your purple!!!

You all know this beautiful baby by now, right?  Emily is our friend Joe & Erica's baby... Be sure to stop HERE to keep updated on Emily's journey...

She has been diagnosed with Infantile Spasms - which is a form of Epilepsy... & tomorrow, Friday, is actually National Epilepsy Day.

Erica & Joe have said that so many people have asked what can they do to help.  They came up with a really neat idea.  They asked that people just wear purple on Friday - the color representing Epilepsy... (Actually, I think the official color is lavender, but hey, purple is purple)

But what Erica wants is for you to take a picture & either post it on  your blog & comment either here or on her blog & she's gonna take all those picture & put them together so when Emily grows up, she can see all the people who love her & support her... & support all those who are like her.. fighting a fight that no one so small should have to fight...

So, you wanna join along?  Come on - purple is HOT right now...

Just be sure to either post a picture of you in your purple on your blog, or just send me or Erica a link to your picture... just click "About me" to get my email address if you'd just rather send it directly!

We're going to punch Seizures - Spasms - Epilpesy - all of it - in the face one day!!!
