The Daisy Garland
A family-run national children’s charity providing active support for children with drug-resistant epilepsy and their parents/carers. The charity was set up in memory of our daughter Daisy who tragically died at 6 years of age from SUDEP (sudden unexpected death in epilepsy patients). We provide NHS hospitals with ketogenic dietitians - a medically recognised and accepted way of treating drug resistant epilepsy. This diet is not widely available on the NHS due to lack of funding. We also provide grants for night-time breathing monitors to children with drug-resistant epilepsy.
Only 27 days to go!

Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.

Ethan was diagnosed with epilepsy in January. Since then it's been a very bumpy road, until he started having seizures we never realised what a minefield epilepsy is. Lots of young people have it far worse than him but it has still completely changed his life at the present.  We believe his is genetic as all scans of his brain have been clear but finding the correct meds is proving a challenge. We feel this is a worthy cause and hope it raises awareness of what battles many young people face every day. I am doing the Herts half marathon to raise money for the Daisy Garland Charity who helped to provide a night time monitor so if Ethan has a seizure in the night it will alert us so we can make sure he is ok.
