Elizabeth Burke - Purple Day, Every Day

Elizabeth Burke

Age Diagnosed: 18
Location: USA

Hobbies: I live in Ashland, Kentucky, going on 30 years old. For fun I play tennis, golf, bowling, I love board games. I work at Kroger at least 35 hours a week.

I believe my community needs to be informed about epilepsy and seizure disorders. Out EMTs, policemen and women, firefighters need to be aware of your disorder before dealing with you in a harmful manner that could stain you for life.
When I had my first seizure the EMTs called my parents liars until taking me to the hospital and me having another seizure on them. It hurt to think some smartass, small town jerks would think of my dad as a liar. Ever since I have been overly protective of myself and others I work with that has any type of seizure disorder.
