Purple Day – The Global Day Of Epilepsy Awareness

Purple Day is an international grassroots effort dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy worldwide. On March 26th annually, people in countries around the world are invited to wear purple and host events in support of epilepsy awareness. Cassidy Megan created the idea of Purple Day in 2008, motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy. Cassidy’s goal is to get people talking about epilepsy in an effort to dispel myths and inform those with seizures that they are not alone. The Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia came on board in 2008 to help develop Cassidy’s idea which is now known as the Purple Day for epilepsy campaign.

  1. Get involved in epilepsy events . Speak, help, etc

    • hi I’m tracey I would like to get involved in yr events thank u please get back to me soon

  2. I would be very interested in being an advocate for the Epilepsy Foundation. I can speak in regards to living with epilepsy since a very young age. We need to inform those with and without epilepsy that those touched by this will live a full and eventful life. We are strong and we will persevere.

  3. Hi everyone I have been living with epilepsy for many yrs. Above all I must say it is a priviledge to meet others who have experience living with epilepsy like myself.
