Because the loss of Jade was so sudden and unexpected the memorial fund in her name has helped us keep her fresh in our memory and also focused on raising awareness in our community of epilepsy.I feel as proud of her now as I did when she was alive because people genuinely want to raise funds in her name and I can’t think of anyone better than Epilepsy Research UK because more research into epilepsy can only be a good thing especially if it can help prevent the loss of a loved one.
I have been approached by lots of people from our area who suffer or know some one who has epilepsy. By highlighting Jade’s memorial fund I believe people are not afraid to speak about epilepsy anymore.
We feel we are doing good by having the fund- it will never bring Jade back but at least we can feel satisfaction that we are helping others. In some ways I feel Jade is a kind of figurehead for epilepsy research.
