My story

[p]In February 2018, when my daughter Niamh was 17 years old, she had a seizure completely out of the blue. Her GP & Consultant suspected it was a one off. In August of 2018 Niamh had her 2nd seizure and her Consultant confirmed that Niamh is epileptic. Since then she has had a few more including a cluster of 5 in a period of 6 hours.[/p][p]Until then my knowledge of epilepsy bordered on ignorance, although I was very much aware of SUDEP, but since Niamh having it confirmed I have done some further research.[/p][p]Epilepsy affects around 600,000 people in the UK. This means that almost 1 in 100 people in the UK have epilepsy. Around 87 people are diagnosed with epilepsy in the UK every day.[/p][p]This year I have already run the[b] London Marathon[/b] and on Sunday 26 May I am running the [b]Liverpool Marathon[/b],[i] [/i]all in aid of Epilepsy Research UK.[/p][p]Niamh has been seizure free for a few months with only one absence in that time. Her attitude is inspirational and she carries on regardless and is the perfect role model for her little brother Ruari.[/p][p]Massive thanks to Team Rees Gym (https://www.facebook.com/teamrees.gym/) for your support and sponsorship, and for ensuring I'm fit to do my best.[/p][p]"A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality." - JWL [/p][p]Thank you all for your kind donations.[/p]
