Thanks for visiting our fundraising page, Our son Anthony has absence epilepsy and has had this horrible illness since he was 10 he is now 17 he has had several treatments at hospital over the years and still this debilitating illness won't subside, he hasn't had a normal childhood like other teenagers as due to the absence seizure s where he doesn't know who he is or where he is when he has one ,and due to the cruel individuals out there who have poked fun at him throughout school,bullied him ,even to the point of coming to his home to cause him grief which all were noted as hate crimes, he just hasn't had a normal life and things aren't getting any better at all for him, He is now 17 and with most lads at this age driving for him is a no at the moment he can't drive ,he can't do a lot of the things others do which is getting him down ,some days he is sick to the point he can't get out of bed due to the medication side effects he is on and the epilepsy , he started a media course at college but his epilepsy is stopping him from doing this ,he is sent home regularly as he's so Ill and having seizures they say he's a risk having him there , this isn't fun at all for him so now we're looking at getting alternative medical help so he can hopefully begin to have a normal life , but this comes with a cost and without people's generosity it's impossible, we are asking anyone who can help us to help ,we are very grateful for anything and everything received, we have never done this before but we're told about it by a medical professional and thought it would be worth a try ,but all money raised will be used for treatment to get our son the medical support he needs.
Thanks very much for your support and our best wishes ,Tee.
