We fight to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy


I experienced my first seizure at the age of 15, I was later diagnosed with idiopathic generalised epilepsy with photosensitivity. I was medicated for 18 months then taken off medication. Six months later I relapsed, during my A level exams. I'm now back on medication and will be for life. Although it's not stopping me, I'm currently at university and have big dreams :)
