Purple Day is an international grassroots effort dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy worldwide. On the day, people in countries around the world are invited to wear purple and host events in support of the condition. Purple Day is the brainchild of a young Canadian girl Cassidy Megan. Cassidy created the idea in 2008, motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy. Her goal is to get people talking about epilepsy in an effort to dispel myths and inform those with seizures that they are not alone.
