Craig passed away suddenly on 28th September 2016, just shy of his 24th birthday on November 12th. Craig was much loved by everyone who knew him and was a loving father to his beautiful 3 year old daughter Laila. Craig was only beginning to come to terms with his life changing condition after being diagnosed in 2015, but he was determined not to let it hold him back. He continued playing with his football team and had finally found his own flat.
After becoming a father in 2013 Craig devoted his life to Laila and was so proud of her and all her achievements. Sadly he missed her winning the dancer of the week trophy at her dance class (which she had berated him for weeks about wanting to win), but we know he would be looking down and beaming with joy for her.
Unfortunately for Craig and our family, there is no known cure for epilepsy and we must live each day without him. Our only hope is that this fund can go somewhere towards finding a cure for epilepsy and spare another family from enduring the pain that we’ve went through.
– Michael Brady, November 2016
