Moving forwards

All her life, Molly has had to deal with both her epilepsy and autism. Then, as a teenager she developed a rare neurological disorder. Today, she is determined not to let her conditions hold her back, using her experience to raise awareness and contribute to mental health projects.

Transitioning

As teenagers get older, they start to have their real taste of independence. But when it comes to healthcare services, much needs to be done in transitioning young people with epilepsy into adult services. Dr Chinwe Ude describes the challenges involved in setting up a transition clinic.

In the driving seat

Dean had a passion for cars and a talent for numbers, which led to a promising career working for an international car company. When the seizures started, he knew his life might not be the same again.

Step by step

Briar’s dreams of becoming a professional dancer were put in jeopardy when her seizures started to interfere with her choreography. She speaks exclusively to Epilepsy Today about how epilepsy has motivated her to be a stronger dancer and a role model for many with the condition.

Our epilepsy heroes

The 2019 Epilepsy Action Awards celebrated the people and organisations that have strived to make a real difference to those with epilepsy. In this feature we recognise their valuable contribution and achievements.
