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.
National Seizure Disorders Foundation is choosing to observe Purple Day by presenting information about this global event on our website. The information below is adopted from the official Purple Day website http://www.purpleday.org/
Why Get Involved?
Epilepsy affects over 50 million people worldwide or approximately 1 in 100 people. That’s more than multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and Parkinson’s disease combined.
