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 0 days to go!

I will be raising money for The Daisy Garland in a chairty boxing match on 20th May. The Daisy Garland is a family run chairty that give support and advice to parents and children with Epilepsy. 7 months ago at the age of 1, our son Austin, was diagnosed with Epilepsy. This has been a very tough time for the family to see what Austin has and is still going through. We think it's amazing what The Daisy Garland chairty offers and what amazing strong people they are after experiencing what no family should ever have to go through. Click their website for more information about them www.thedaisygarland.org.uk.

This Page is for updates and donations for the event. Tickets for the event will be available directly from me. Donations will last a month after the event then all monies raised will go directly to The Daisy Garland, Virgin do not profit from this.

I will start full training for the event w/c 27th March.

Thanks for your support, as donations can mean so much to a family/persons with Epilepsy! Sharing Appreciated 

See you Fight Night!
