Epilepsy Awareness Purple Day is an international grassroots effort dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy worldwide, with people being encouraged to wear purple and host events in support of this initiative.

Cassidy Megan created the idea of Purple Day in 2008, motivated by her own struggle with epilepsy. The goal of Purple Day is to get people talking about epilepsy in an effort to dispel myths and inform those with seizures that they are not alone.
