4. Why do people wear purple for epilepsy?

People wear purple for epilepsy to raise awareness and show support. Purple represents hope and solidarity, aiming to reduce stigma and promote understanding of epilepsy. It’s a symbol of support for those with epilepsy.

5. What color is for epilepsy awareness?

Purple is the official color for epilepsy awareness. It’s because of lavender, a purple flower that has a connection to epilepsy. The word “epilepsy” comes from a Greek word meaning “to seize.” Long ago, people thought lavender could help with epilepsy, so they used it as a treatment.

In 2008, a girl named Cassidy Megan started Purple Day to tell people about epilepsy all around the world. She picked purple because of lavender’s link to epilepsy. Now, Purple Day is celebrated every March 26th.

You can help too! Wear purple on Purple Day or use purple symbols like the purple ribbon. If you want to learn more about epilepsy and how to support people with it, check out the websites of organizations like the Epilepsy Foundation and the International League Against Epilepsy. Together, we can raise awareness and help those with epilepsy.
