Story

Myself and Steve are taking part in running the 20km Tough Mudder in Scotland on the 16th of June. We decided it was a great opportunity to raise money along the way to a cause very close to our hearts. Please read Jakes Story below.....

Jake Bradley Smith was born on 1st November 2012, at 4 months he had his first prolonged seizure lasting 45 minutes. 2 weeks later he had another prolonged seizure which led to another hospital admission and many tests including 2 lumbar punctures, an EEG, and an MRI. Over the next few months many more seizures followed and in July 2013 he was diagnosed with Epilepsy. However his consultant was still convinced he had a much more complex condition, he pushed for the test which around Jakes 1st Birthday came back with the diagnosis of Dravet Syndrome. Throughout his first year of life he had many hospital stays and tests but he was an inspiration to us all and was always giggling and happy.

Jake sadly passed away on the 18th of December 2016 due to a seizure which was to be too much for him. Jakes Tree House continues to raise money to support children with Dravets Syndrome and also York Inspirational Kids which helps families like Jakes. Please give generously to support this amazing cause.
