We support children with epilepsy to help improve their quality of life.

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Thank you for visiting my page. My daughter Poppy, has had uncontrolled epilepsy since she was  18 months. No matter how much we increased her meds and added extra meds,  her seizures just got worse and worse. These seizures and the side effects of the medications were having a massive impact on our daughter and we could just see all of her personality and strength disappearing in front of our eyes. In may last year,  our lives changed forever when Poppy started the ketogenic diet. This has been the most amazing opportunity we have ever been given. The dietician is funded by the Daisy Garland charity and I have been given the most amazing level of care and support from Sara Garland. 8 months on,  my daughter is now seizure free and we are weaning her  3rd and final drug. Over the last 2 weeks,  I really feel I have got my daughter back.  She is so much happier and brighter,  she is confident and laughs a lot. I never thought I would ever see this day come. Not only do Daisy Garland fund dieticians across the UK,  they also provide grants for SATs monitors for children who have severe night time seizures. These monitors alarm when the child has a seizure and THEY SAVE CHILDRENS' LIVES. Please support this charity to make these SATs monitors available for children and their families that a desperate for a monitor to help reduce their risk of SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy Patients)  I will be running 26 miles per week for 26 weeks to try to raise money for families to help change their lives in the same way Daisy Garland have changed ours. Thank you xx
