  • 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.
    Faye Waddams - Swim Instructir
  • Laura Pickford
    My little boy has drug resistant epilepsy, Landau-Kleffner Syndrome
    Laura Pickford - Social worker
  • Janie Warner
    I like to support things wherever I can & too many people are unaware of Epilepsy & some are scared of it. It is too much of a taboo subject unfortunately.
    Janie Warner - Housewife
  • Tammy Chappell
    It is important to support people with this condition
    Tammy Chappell - Lead TA physical and medical
  • John Putman
    of the effects epilepsy has had on my life, especially in relation to work
    John Putman - Self-employed
  • Nicole Bateman
    My son has epilepsy and more funding is needed for research into better medication with less side effects so people's lives can stop being interrupted..

  • Alexandra J C Westcott
    I lost my gorgeous nephew to Epilepsy which was so unnecessary and sad. He had a wonderful future ahead of him, not to be realised.
    Alexandra J C Westcott - Maker
  • Serina Lall
    Just because Epilepsy is invisible, it doesn’t mean it’s not there. People think that the only time that Epilepsy affects you is when you have a tonic-clonic seizure when it’s more than that.
    Serina Lall - Recent Graduate (2020)
  • Isabelle Gourlay
    We need to end the stigma and get an open conversation so more people are educated on epilepsy's implications.
    Isabelle Gourlay - Account Manager
