Story

Dear Friend

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. We're raising money for the Epilepsy Society

Having had epilepsy since the age of 4, this year Libby was diagnosed with Focal Cortical Dysplasia - a congenital brain lesion which is causing her seizures. It is not easily controlled by medicines, but surgery may be an option. This has been a life changer for the whole family. On a bad day Libs can have more than 10 seizures. She walks with a limp, has very broken sleep, and misses out on lots of fun. Despite this she remains amazingly cheerful and full of beans.

50 million people have epilepsy worldwide. That's 1 in 100. It can be an isolating and disabling condition. We're raising money to fund research into medicines and surgery to help people with epilepsy.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Thank so much for your help.

Rachel, Tim, Morgan, Eddie and Libby xx
