Liane Alton explains why she has chosen to set up a memorial fund in memory of her brother Michael, who died age 7.Michael had had one fit and the doctors weren’t sure if it was epilepsy or just because he had banged his head. He then had a second fit and unfortunately he died from this one. It was a massive unexpected shock, and it has taken a long time for me to be old enough – I was 9 when he died – and brave enough to set up this fund in his memory. I hope to raise as much money as possible in his memory as I hope no-one in the future ever has to lose a child/sibling so unexpectedly.I will doing lots of different fundraising events to try and raise money for this fantastic charity. You can find out more about what I’m up to at my justgiving team page for Michael’s memorial fund.
