A message from the Embridge CEO, Emma O'Brien:

In loving memory of my dear son Leo, who has left us too soon at just 11 years old.

Young Epilepsy is a charity close to the heart of Embridge. Our family know first-hand how hard it is to support a child with epilepsy, with Leo being diagnosed with a drug resistant form of epilepsy. Living daily with the challenges this introduces as well as the limited treatments that are currently available was very hard for Leo and all that love him. 

Young Epilepsy provides resources to create better lives for children like Leo and carry out the much-needed research to ensure children and their families have the support they need to have a quality life that each child deserves. Without Young Epilepsy this would not be possible for many children across the UK

Embridge is proud to collaborate with Young Epilepsy and we wish to help channel Leo's legacy by supporting others. In lieu of flowers, may we kindly request your support for this cause. Your contributions will truly make a difference to other families and children like Leo.

Update 14th February: We are incredibly grateful to each and every one of you who has extended your support to this amazing charity. In the midst of our heartbreak, your kindness and unwavering support have been a beacon of hope. Your generous contributions and heartfelt messages mean more to us than words can express. With your help, we believe that the funds raised will make a significant difference in the lives of other children and families facing similar challenges. From the depths of our hearts, thank you for all your support.
