Guests: Morgan Welk - Producer of All About Living
Anne Morgan Giroux and Colleen Penwell - Founder and Spokeswomen for Lily's Fund for Epilepsy Research

Did you know that epilepsy affects more people than multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and Parkinson's Disease COMBINED? The fact is, one in 26 people will develop epilepsy during their lifetime. One of them is All About Living producer, Morgan Welk, who moves from the production board to the microphone to share his personal experience of living with epilepsy.

Joining Morgan on this program is Anne Giroux and Colleen Penwell who, as mothers of daughters diagnosed with epilepsy, help us understand how children and families are affected and some of the mysteries and myths that surround this puzzling brain disorder.

Schools, businesses, and the general public are invited to help build awareness for epilepsy by wearing purple on Purple Day - March 26th.
