Halloween can be a challenging time for children living with epilepsy as loud noises, commotion and flashing or moving decorations can potentially be a catalyst for seizures.
The Edmonton Epilepsy Association’s (EEA) – www,edmontonepilepsy.org is decorating its headquarters at 11215 Groat Road NW this year to create a #PurpleHauntedHouse for children and adults with epilepsy – and those without – a great opportunity to learn about the disorder, have fun and celebrate the holiday. Purple is the internationally recognized colour for epilepsy. There will be also be five special ghosts to find around the yard of the #PurpleHauntedHouseYEG, each with initials of interesting people both living and passed with epilepsy who have achieved great things.
Visitors are encouraged to find the ghosts and use a QR code to visit a secret webpage that will teach them about these inspiring people, educate them on epilepsy and a chance to win some great prizes! If you would be interested in speaking with a representative at the Edmonton Epilepsy Association and a parent or child about this year’s inaugural Purple Haunted House and the challenges of celebrating Halloween for those living with epilepsy, please let me know and I can help coordinate. Thank you kindly!
