Today is Purple Day to raise epilepsy awareness


 Today is  Purple Daystarted by the gorgeous girl, Cassidy Megan, in the photo. This young girl was incredibly brave and decided that instead of being shamed by her illness, she was going to claim it, talk about it, and make people realize how it impacts the lives of people. 

I met her at the Purple Day party, organized in part by the fabulous Jessica Keener, and held at the delectable Dylan's Candy Bar in NYC. Surrounded by people and photographed every second, she was serene, beautiful, and she spoke eloquently.  The Anita Kaufmann Foundation, and its director, Debra Josephs, were key to bringing this event to Dylan's, by the way.
