My Story

Epilepsy has spanned 3 generations of my family to date. As a child I remember walking home from school to my grandparents house and as I came around the corner of my grandparents street, my grandfather would always be waiting for me at the letterbox. In the blink of eye and still in his late 50's I still remember to this day my mother having to explain to me my grandfather would no longer be waiting at that letterbox. As a young girl I couldn't understand epilepsy and I seemed to have pushed it to the back of my head until most recently when my daughter was born. At 6 weeks of age when any new parent is supposed to be enjoying their time as a first time mother I was watching my daughter having uncontrollable seizures that were causing her to stop breathing for periods of time. Full credit goes to the Royal Children's Hospital for their treatment of my daughter and I can now say the seizures have stopped and Zoe is medication free (3 years and counting) however we have never been given a reason as to what caused these seizures and most likely never will so not a week goes by that I think will it return? I hope by sharing my story I can educate others and raise awareness for the serious issue of epilepsy.

Thank You
