This Friday, March 26th, is a day dedicated to Epilepsy Awareness.
Purple Day was founded in 2008 by a nine year old girl, Cassidy Megan, from Nova Scotia, Canada. She suffers from epilepsy, as do fifty million people around the world. She decided that she wanted the rest of us to become more aware of the problems involved with epilepsy, and that one way to do that was to ask us to wear the color purple on one day a year.
You can read about her at this site. (T-shirts are available.)
