Epilepsy Research UK #ALifeInterrupted – Shape Epilepsy Research2021-01-08T09:59:05+00:00

Our Campaign

Our #ALifeInterrupted campaign seeks to highlight the disruptive, interruptive impact of epilepsy, the inequalities in research funding and calls on people affected by epilepsy to shape the future of research. Will you pledge your support?


“I’m pledging my support for the #ALifeInterrupted campaign because…

  • Daniel Hallett
    My good friend's son, Charlie, had a very rare form of epilepsy and Charlie fell asleep on July 17th 2017 at 7 years old, so I would like to pledge my support in his memory.

    I had a cousin pass away because of a seizure when he was 30, and I don't think enough can be done to raise awareness for epilepsy.

  • Rachel Abba
    Epilepsy affects so many people and takes too many lives each year, including my son’s life. We need to make more people aware of it
    Rachel Abba
  • Rodney Kettel
    Our 16-year-old grandson has just been diagnosed with idiopathic generalised epilepsy. He and his family have benefitted from your research and contributed to "Have Your Say"

  • Faye Waddams
    Research is the future, research is the only way to find a cure. To give my little boy a Mummy who doesn’t have seizures. Without research there is no hope.
