Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Amelie was diagnosed with epilepsy at 3 months old. Her seizures (we called 'Polly' to try and make light of the severity of her condition) have nearly stolen her from us a few times. The medication she was given sometimes didn't work and the ones that helped calm 'Polly' have had awful side effects. At 5 years old Amelie was introduced to the Ketogenic Diet and is supported by Matthews Friends on this. Amelie is now off one of the medications and is reduced in the last one. She is a different little girl. She has found a belly laugh we have never heard before and smiles daily now instead of fighting 'Polly' day and night. Without this diet I dread to think of what Amelie's future would be like. Without Matthews Friends I do not think my daughter would have much of a future or enjoyment that she has now and I owe Matthews Friends my world.

We are walking for Tiger (Amelie) to help raise money for this charity so others can benefit as we have. We would be entirely grateful if you could donate.

Thank you so much!
