Purple Day® Every Day Blog

Real people with epilepsy. Real families. Real stories. Real strength. Real hope.

The Purple Day® Every Day blog consists of a growing network of people with epilepsy, their caregivers and family members, other advocates and even some health care providers (HCPs) within the epilepsy community committed to helping us raise awareness each and every day of the year.
