    Story

    Shania had a seizure for the first time on Friday 29th January 2016 at 2am, within 6 days she was put on medication to try and control her seizures as she had 10 fits in one day and it was getting worse. Shania had to have an MRI and 2 EEGs what come back abnormal, and got diagnosed with EPILEPSY, my heart got broken into a million pieces but we got to stay strong as she needs me now more than ever also her sister and brother. I have never in my life asked for anything but I need help, Shania is 10 years old and unable to do anything without adult supervision even going to the loo I have to be behind the door she finds it embarrassing and as a 10 year old she wants a little freedom that she can't have and that is the reason I need help. If I could get enough money to buy Shania a seizure detector watch she could have a little bit more freedom as well as stopping me being on edge constantly, if I could buy Shania the seizure detecting mat for her bed I wouldn't have to keep a camera in her bedroom to monitor her every move she could have a bit more privacy and I wouldn't be staring at the camera every minute to make sure she is ok and hopefully get a worry free night sleep. Shania is currently on 3 different medication and still having seizures, we are waiting for a referral to Birmingham Children's Hospital and don't know how long it will be before we get an appointment. This is why I am asking you all for help, please. After buying Shania the watch and bed mat any money left will go to the Epilepsy charity to help them. And we will hopefully one day find a cure for Epilepsy.Thank you all so very much for reading :) Much love.x
