    My daughter has written a book about Epilepsy.

    I'm very proud of our daughter she has written and illustrated a children’s story about epilepsy inspired by our grandson Aiden who was diagnosed with the condition at 9 months of age.
    The story is about Aiden who is the lion, his brother and their friends play the part of other animals.
    The story tells how young children are treated by other kids that don't understand when they see another kid that has a defect. (for want of a better word)
    If you are interested in purchasing the book or learning more check out the website "http://thelionssecret.wordpress.com/" $2 from each book sold will be donated to Epilepsy Queensland to help raise awareness and education for people living with epilepsy.
    She has orders from all over the world.

    As an epileptic, I say thank you!! I've grown up with it, my mum has it, as does my Aunt, and 3 of my cousins. It runs in our family ( even though they say it's not at all hereditary) Your daughter has done a wonderful thing, it's hard growing up with epilepsy, people aren't weren't so understanding when I was growing up. I think there's more acceptance of it now, which is great, and people like you're daughter are doing a great job of lessening the stigma that goes along with it. I think she's earned a BIG pat on the back, I'll be buying a copy! I'll be sure to pass the link along too xo

    Sent the link to the wife (she has epilespy) 2 mins later she sends me an invoice to pay for it.
    it will be for our little one to read and understand for the future (he is only 2 1/2 ATM)

    Every little bit helps in creating understanding.

    A very well done to your daughter. Our Granddaughter has RETS (a form of autism) so I understand the needs for more awareness and this is a wonderful thing your daughter has done. You should be very proud as so should your daughter.
    Please be honest with your Critique of my images. I may not always agree, but I will not be offended - CC assists my learning and is always appreciate
