A group of us ran the Great Manchester 10K Run on May 10th to raise awareness of epilepsy in the community and to raise money on behalf of Epilepsy Action.
We did this in memory of our beautiful daughter Carla Rankin who died last August whilst having a seizure. She was 27 years old and even though we would have done anything to take her condition away from her, she never let it spoil her life or prevent her from doing what she wanted to do.
Carla was an active member of Epilepsy Action and she would like the fact that her death might raise money for a charity for which she had a lot of time. We have set up a Sunflower Tribute for Carla through Epilepsy Action so please take a look whenever you have a moment at carla.rankin.muchloved.com
