Bonuscast - What’s changed with epilepsy in the last 70 years?
What’s changed with epilepsy in the last 70 years? In this special bonuscast, we talk with Epilepsy Action Chief Executive Philip Lee about the history of epilepsy, key milestones and changes for people with epilepsy, the challenges that 2020 has brought and what we hope for the future.
8 - A winning tale of friendship
Ellis, 9, was diagnosed with focal epilepsy in 2019. His whole world was turned upside down, becoming withdrawn and depressed. His seizures still aren’t under control. Reggie, a good school friend of Ellis, has proven to be a hero when it comes to recognising Ellis’ seizures. Both in person and throughout lockdown, Reggie checks on Ellis to keep his spirits high. We talk to the two boys about epilepsy, friendship and what they’ve been up to recently.
