We fight to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy

Sasha Hunter

I was first diagnosed at 16 & my epilepsy was unremarkable - medication gave me good control. I worked & went about my life without a second thought. Suddenly it all changed. When I was 21, an infection put me in the hospital & I came out 2 weeks later with multiple seizures a week. 15 years later I have anywhere between 10 & 15 atonic seizures a week. Yet, I've graduated with 3 degrees. I've got married and become a Mum. Epilepsy is the perpetual force that challenges me to get over the hurdle it puts in my way. I'd never choose it, but I've done okay with it.
