March 26 is Purple Day®, the Global Epilepsy Awareness Day.

Celebrate Purple Day® in Cleveland the weeks of March 14-20 & 21-26.

To help raise awareness in NEO, we are organizing a grass-roots campaign with a call-to- action of wearing purple and planning daily activities around the city so the community can be involved by showing support and raising epilepsy awareness. Check the EA’s Facebook page and the Purple Day® page on our website to see a full list of activities.

For children, adults and families in Northeast Ohio impacted by epilepsy we will raise awareness in the community, provide education, advocacy and direct services that lead to an increased understanding of the disorder and to better management of the condition, resilience, personal fulfillment, independence and the ability to contribute meaningfully to the community.

Purpose Statement

We believe education and awareness are imperative to treatment, acceptance, equitable division of resources and the inherent right of every individual impacted by epilepsy to lead a happy, healthy and productive life.
