Families and advocates from around United States converge to turn the world's most iconic theme park purple in support of epilepsy awareness!

DETAILS: The 6th Annual Epilepsy Awareness Day at Disneyland Resort takes place on November 7, 2018. All families and advocates are invited to attend this event and join the epilepsy community to turn Disneyland purple! Epilepsy Awareness Day at Disneyland was founded by parents Brad and Candy Levy as a tribute to their 18 year-old daughter Sofie, who is now 9 years seizure free. The family now runs a nonprofit called Sofie's Journey. 

More than 1,800 supporters attended last year. With your help, we can top that number this fall, while advancing awareness of epilepsy in partnership with the iconic Disneyland brand. Danny Did is excited to be a partner to this event.

EVENT EXPO: The free EXPO will be held at The Disneyland Hotel on:

  • Monday November 5th: 10 am - 5 pm 
  • Tuesday November 6th: 8 am - 4 pm

The EXPO will feature over 50 non-profit Epilepsy support groups, hospitals with Epilepsy programs and vendors who service the Epilepsy community. The goal for the EXPO is to give the Epilepsy community a chance to to network with other families who share similar conditions, learn about new treatments and products, and create long term relationships with other families affected by epilepsy.
