About The Turning the World Purple Foundation:

We are out to smash stigmas associated with Epilepsy. We are trying to bring awareness about Epilepsy. It is still so "TABOO" in some places to even speak about it. You are not alone. TTWP was founded in 2013 by Michelle Hernandez. She was diagnosed at 11 months old and at age 27 finally gained seizure freedom through a right temporal lobectomy.








Our Mission

Our goal to bring awareness and education to the world. We NEED a cure but until then education and awareness is essential

“Epilepsy does NOT define who I am

Together we will find a cure
— Michelle Hernandez Founder & CEO
