WHAT IS PURPLE DAY?
Purple Day is a worldwide campaign dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding of epilepsy. On 26 March each year, people are encouraged to wear purple to show their support of those living with epilepsy.
Purple Day was founded in 2008, by nine-year-old Cassidy Megan of Nova Scotia, Canada. Motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy, Cassidy started Purple Day in an effort to get people talking about the condition, to spread awareness and to let those impacted by seizures know that they are not alone.
