Renowned Pediatrician Joins Fight for Epilepsy Awareness for Purple Day
Date:3/24/2009

Dr. Alan Greene supports 10-year-old Cassidy Megan's Purple Day USA by turning DrGreene.com purple for the day and donning green-and-purple socks.

March 26 is Purple Day USA, an event founded by 10-year-old Cassidy Megan to increase awareness about epilepsy. Her grassroots initiative is now an international effort to encourage people to wear purple one day a year to support the challenges of people with epilepsy. Cassidy chose purple since lavender is the international color for epilepsy.

Cassidy and her mother are active members of the DrGreene.com community, and Dr. Greene feels strongly about helping families learn about the diseases and challenges that affect their kids. Dr. Greene joined celebrities including Paul Shaffer of the Late Show with David Letterman and Project Runway Season Five winner Leanne Marshall for the Purple New York Party in New York City earlier this month. He spoke at the event, even donning special green-and-purple striped socks for the occasion.

"I'm honored to be a part of Cassidy's efforts to answer people's questions about epilepsy," Dr. Greene said. "She helps kids like her know they're not alone."
