News From Caitlin's Retreat

Purple Day

Sunday, March 31, 2013

Today we held our purple day event at Caitlin's Retreat. Thank you so much for allowing us to use your wonderful venue. I have attached a photo of some of our children with Joffa Corfe (collingwood football club) dressed as purple man to promote epilepsy awareness.

Back row: Sean, Joffa (purple man), Cassandra, Daniel 

All the kids/ teens in the photo other than Jasmine have Epilepsy. Tara,Ronan and Sean have uncontrolled epilepsy. Daniel and Cassandra have better control but do still have seizures. Places like Caitlin's retreat allow us to have a picnic with the knowledge that when something does happen there is a bed to rest in and access able toilet makes it so much easier. And with so many absconders it was fantastic with the fully enclosed yard.

We are hoping to make this an annual event and will be in contact in coming months to organise again for next year.
