Purple Day for epilepsy

On 26 March is Purple Day for epilepsy awareness
Every year on March 26th people around the world celebrate Purple Day by wearing purple clothing to increase awareness for epilepsy‬.
The day was initiated in 2008 by then 8-year old Cassidy Megan who had been diagnosed with epilepsy when she was 7 years old. She wants "to get people talking about epilepsy in an effort to dispel myths and inform those with seizures that they are not alone". Epilepsy is a disease that so far cannot be cured. EPITARGET focuses on understanding the processes and mechanisms involved in the development of epilepsy to some day be able to stop the process before a patient has developed epilepsy.
