Amelia tragically died at home on the 20th December 2018 aged 21.
Around her 16th birthday she developed epilepsy in the form Petit Mal seizures or temporary absences from her surrounding situation.
Supported by her dedicated medical team, she began a journey to tackle her condition using various combinations of prescribed drugs to control her fits, but to no avail. Even though these powerful drugs affected her energy levels it didn't deter her from trying to lead a normal life. Just over a year ago she started experiencing Grand Mal seizures where she lost consciousness.
Amelia found support from the Epilepsy Society who carry out important research and guidance to this awful affliction. She made the decision to donate her brain in the hope it will benefit others by providing valuable clues as to the cause and cure for this life threatening condition.
We thank you all for any donation, every penny helps.
