Support Groups in 2016!
The Epilepsy and Seizure Association of Manitoba is please to announce that we will have two continuing support groups. Both will be held at our office at 4-1805 Main Street, Winnipeg.
The youth support group is intended for persons aged 18-29 living with or affected by epilepsy/seizure disorder. The adult support group is for all ages!
Please contact us if you are interested! We would love to see you.
Please note that the support groups do not meet during the summer months. The support groups will resume in the Fall of 2016. Specific dates will be available closer to the Fall.
March 26th is
PURPLE DAY FOR EPILEPSY!
We hope your group will help ESAM raise awareness of epilepsy in Manitoba.
Join with preschools, nursery schools, child care centres and kindergarten classes across the province for the Purple Day Bunny Hop in support of epilepsy and seizure awareness in Manitoba.
Purple Day was an idea that began in 2008, with Cassidy, a nine year old girl in Nova Scotia who has epilepsy. She decided that there should be one special day each year so that kids (and grown-ups) with seizures wouldn’t feel so alone. Since then, her idea has grown world-wide and on March 26th, people all over the globe will be holding special events and wearing purple to show they care.
Cassidy is making a difference, and we know that the kids of Manitoba can too. So the Epilepsy and Seizure Association of Manitoba is holding the province-wide Purple Day Bunny Hop to show just how much even little kids can do!
