purple-dayAkcija Purple Day (Ljubičasti dan) obilježava se 26. ožujka, a pokrenula ju je 2008.g. Cassidy Megan (9) Nova Scotia, Canada uz pomoć nacionalne organizacije za epilepsiju s ciljem osvještavanja javnosti o toj bolesti. Smatra se da u svijetu boluje preko 50 milijuna ljudi od epilepsije koja je još uvijek nedovoljno poznata. U Hrvatskoj od epilepsije boluje 45 tisuća ljudi, a svake se godine dijagnosticira oko 2.500 novooboljelih.  Smatra se da od epilepsije oboli između 0,8 i 1% stanovništva neke zemlje.

Cassidy's Story

cassidy-meganHi, my name is Cassidy Megan. I’m nine years old and I have epilepsy. I started Purple Day because I wanted to tell everyone about epilepsy, especially that all seizures are not the same and that people with epilepsy are ordinary people just like everyone else. I also wanted kids with epilepsy to know that they are not alone.
Before I started Purple Day, I was afraid to tell people about my epilepsy because I thought they would make fun of me. After the Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia did a presentation in my class, I started to talk with the other kids about my seizures. That is when I decided to become a spokesperson for kids with epilepsy.
When I’m not in school or working on Purple Day, I like to act. I have been in a couple of commercials and was the lead in a movie featured in the Atlantic Film Festival. I also like to play outdoors with my friends, take care of my four pets, go to Girl Guides and cheerlead. My favourite thing to do is spend time with my family.

Ljubičasto je internacionalna boja za epilepsiju i zato, najmanje što možete učiniti, je obući nešto ljubičasto na taj dan.
