The Wybourn Family...Curt, Sara, Gracie, Ella, Ethan, Baxter the hamster and Phinneas the fish live in a small town in Illinois. Ethan was diagnosed with epilepsy three years ago. Since then, the Wybourn's have jumped in with both feet and have educated themselves as much as they could about the condition. In the process, the family has learned just as much about themselves as they have about seizure disorders. Purple Day is a big event for them and this year, Gracie, Ella and Ethan are the three beautiful children you see on the Purple Day USA poster.
