Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Dan is running this year with his Support Worker Michelle to raise funds for the Epilepsy charity. It is for his Cousin Amy who has a very severe form of this dreadful disease. She 22 year old & lives with her Mum, Dad, older Sister and younger Brother. Amy was 11 years old when she was first diagnosed with Epilepsy & over the past 11 years her seizures have become much more aggressive and are severely challenging for her.

Amy has Refractory Epilepsy - this has changed her life in so many ways, though she does her very best to lead as normal a life as is possible for her. When going out and about she now has to use her wheelchair as she does not have any auras before her seizures & they can happen at anytime & without warning. She has on many occasions sustained serious injuries.

Amy has a full supportive network of family, friends & support workers to ensure she can live her life to the full & to the best of her ability.

Her Epilepsy is chronic and life long and the medication she takes is life saving. 

Please give generously to ensure more research can be done to find a cure for this dreadful disease. Thank you.
