We fight to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy

Andy Rhodes

I was diagnosed with temporal lobe epilepsy when I was 18 years old. I live with simple partial seizures and tonic clonic seizures. My tonic clonic seizures have reduced from daily to an average of 3 a year. However the simple partial seizures can be a daily battle . Each one last just a second to several minutes.
I have been married 25 years have 3 children and one grand child. My family have been a blessing over the years. Always been there for me, patient and understanding
I do not work at the moment, so I am volunteering around 2 to 4 hours a week. I run 2 epilepsy support/awareness groups on facebook along with other pages and in the process of starting an epilepsy coffee and chat group in my local area.
I have a keen interest in social media. movies and music. I enjoy photography when I can get out.
