Janice and Sarah running for research

Friends, Janice and Sarah took on the Aintree 5k in aid of vital research into epilepsy. Janice’s son was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2019 and has recently been take off medication, and in the last month has been seizure free.

We are hoping that it stays this way and feel lucky that he had a type of epilepsy that could be controlled. For others with more severe epilepsy this is not the case. When we found out Alfie had epilepsy, I was unaware about the different types and how difficult it can be to manage. We are fundraising for Epilepsy Research UK to help the people with epilepsy who have uncontrollable seizures which affect their everyday life.
