Our Story

Purple Peace Foundation is the legacy of Amanda Brady.  The foundation was started by her family shortly after she passed away in 2011 from a seizure, probable SUDEP.  Her parents, Holly and Mark Brady began the foundation in order to raise awareness about epilepsy and seizures, and to be able to interact directly with other families living through epilepsy.

Over the past 10 years, with the help of family, friends and volunteers, along with the support of our community, Purple Peace has grown and is thriving in its mission to raise awareness and educate others about epilepsy and seizures, and to connect with families living with epilepsy.

Purple Peace is proud to have sponsored more than 10 families to attend the Epilepsy Awareness Day at Disneyland EXPO in the past. We have been involved in bringing legislature to the MO State Capitol in support of making all schools in MO Seizure Safe Schools. Purple Peace is very excited to have just opened the “Connection Center”, a place where we can gather, provide resources and support to those with epilepsy and throughout the community!
