Purple Day (Epilepsy Action Australia)
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 and to let those impacted by seizures know that they are not alone.
She named the day Purple Day after the internationally recognised colour for epilepsy, lavender.
