Epilepsy Awareness Day
Mar 26 all-day

Epilepsy Awareness Day is observed annually on March 26th.  The day has become known as “Purple Day” as people are encouraged to wear the color to increase awareness of Epilepsy.

According to the World Health Organization, nearly 50 million people around the world live with epilepsy.  While it is not contagious, and in many cases, there is no known cause for the condition, sometimes the reason is due to disease or injury such as stroke or infection.
It is a treatable condition, but it can be confusing especially for children.  In some parts of the world, treatment may be difficult to get.
