Fiona first discovered Epilepsy Lifestyle through the Young Epilepsy App. She was desperate and didn't know who to turn to regarding her 9 year old son having night time seizures. She needed to know when her son was having seizures and as a result just wasn't sleeping. 'That's when I found Marie and Epilepsy Lifestyle' states Fiona. 'Within a month, Jude had a monitor on his bed and I could sleep again'.
Fiona wanted to pay the charity back, so the money could help another family. She organised a tea party, her daughter Olivia and her parents took part in a Christmas pudding dash and a friend of Fiona's, Debbie, ran the London marathon. Fiona excels at fundraising and really enjoy this aspect of the charity.
'My son Jude is now 10 years old. Epilepsy is a big part of his life, along with his specific learning difficulties. I also have a beautiful 13 year old daughter, who is very motivated, with a fantastic understanding of others with disabilities. My parents are also supportive of Epilepsy Lifestyle'
