Hello everyone, this Friday (March 26th) will once again be International Purple Day. Canadian born Cassidy Megan created the idea of Purple Day in 2008, motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy. Cassidy’s goal is to get people talking about epilepsy in an effort to dispel myths & let those living with epilepsy know that they are not alone.

It’s March & you pawsitively must mark your calendars on March 26th. It’s Purple Day!
Purple Day is the internationally recognized day of epilepsy awareness! It was an idea created by Canadian Megan Cassidy who was motivated by her own struggles & journey with epilepsy. It was her hope that Purple Day would get people talking about epilepsy, share personal information, educate, support & inform those living with epilepsy & let them know they that they are not alone. With the help of ‘The Epilepsy Association of The Maritimes‘ Megan Cassidy’s idea was developed in 2008 & is now know as Purple Day.
Like humans, we dogs & cats can also live with epilepsy. I, CEO Olivia have been diagnosed & living with Idiopathic Epilepsy for just over 9 years. As we are often known for sharing, ‘When someone in the family lives with epilepsy, everyone in the family lives with epilepsy.’ That’s why we ‘Show our Purple & invite you to Show your Purple!’ during the month of March. It’s a pawsome way to get people talking about epilepsy.
We have already been contacted by our friend & fellow Epilepsy Warrior Sasha Pina about her Purple Day event, ‘Lace’EM Up For Epilepsy’ (race will be ran May 2, 2021). Dot & Jerry Underfoot have been working on something for Purple Day which we will bark about at another time & I am pawsitive The Wally Foundation – Canine Epilepsy will have a Purple Day announcement as well. We always want to hear from you & what your Purple Day plans are. Do you have an event you would like to share with us? Go ahead, we’re can’t wait to hear about it!
In the coming weeks we have some wooftastic epilepsy related topics to share with you so sniff your way back & get the dirt on this neurological disorder & see me always looking furbulous in purple.

Hi everyone, CEO Olivia here. I know a lot of you are now working from home. I hope you’re still wearing your finest purple, because it’s Purple Day, a global movement to raise epilepsy awareness.
If you need a break from the interwebs, have some fun with your four legged companion. Dress up in your finest purple or find something purple in your home, then snap a pic or two. Be creative, jammies are acceptable. BOL!
Then you can post the pics on my Facebook page, “Oh, The Life of Olivia”. I’ll share them to the Wally Foundation ~ Canine Epilepsy page. For those of you who can, please consider making a donation.
Stay strong everyone. Stay home if you’ve been asked to.
CEO Olivia ❤
