The day came about from Cassidy Megan in 2008. Megan is a Nova Scotia, Canada resident who struggled with epilepsy. She wanted people to get started talking about it. Not only those with epilepsy, but also those that don’t. The Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia decided to help promote her idea of a day for epilepsy, therefore, Purple Day was born. Just one year later, 2009, the Anita Kaufmann Foundation join and helped launch Purple Day internationally.

This day is held annually on March 26.

I wanted people around the world to come together and teach others about epilepsy.
