Meet Whitney, Sammy, Charlotte, and Natalie.
These four Latham Ridge Elementary School students are living with Epilepsy. Wanting to spread awareness and educate their peers, they organized a school-wide assembly on Purple Day.
One-by-one, they shared their personal experience with Epilepsy while their classmates supported them in a sea of purple.
The four began friends through the Epilepsy Foundation of Northeastern New York, which they have been working with the past month to make Purple Day a success at their school.
