SUDEP Action

We raise awareness of SUDEP, epilepsy risks to prevent deaths & support those bereaved

Charity Registration No. 1164250 (England & Wales) SC047223 (Scotland)

Story

In June last year, Rebecca was taken from us far too soon. She suffered with epilepsy almost all her life and dealt with it without fuss or complaint...and without having anyone really understand what it meant for her.

I have therefore decided to honour and celebrate her beauty by dedicating the London Marathon to her. I also want to show my love for her family and to support a brilliant charity.

So forget about my PB's...a small donation is all that matters. Please help me to celebrate Rebecca and support Epilepsy Bereaved so they can continue their fantastic work.

Epilepsy Bereaved is the leading voluntary organisation in the UK and internationally working to prevent unnecessary deaths from SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy) and other epilepsy deaths.

The risks of SUDEP and other epilepsy deaths are still not fully acknowledged. This means that people with epilepsy are still at risk of dying suddenly, prematurely and unnecessarily. Without Epilepsy Bereaved, awareness of SUDEP and epilepsy related deaths would be minimal.

EB maintains a strong focus on SUDEP and other epilepsy related deaths and is dedicated to research to prevent SUDEP and other epilepsy related deaths. EB is the only charity dedicated to the support and enablement of those bereaved in this way. This essential service breaks the isolation that families and friends experience following SUDEP or other seizure related deaths.

Your support will go a long way to helping the work EB does.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now,

Thanks,
