We fight to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy


Hello, my name is Joseph & im 14 years old. Doctors found out I was epileptic when I was just 3. Mum does a very good job looking after me, giving me my feed through my tummy tube & all of my medicine. I have a complicated type of Epilepsy & seizures all the time. Ive been in hospital countless amounts of times but im still a very smiley boy. Sometimes I can talk & walk, and sometimes I cant. I have to visit the hospital a lot when im feeling ill.
