My story

[p]On 19th June 1990, aged 12, my life changed forever. After suffering a severe seizure due to a viral infection in the brain, I was diagnosed with epilepsy. Several years later it was discovered that I actually have Complex Epilepsy Syndrome as I have various types of seizures and will always have the condition. In the beginning I was angry because I couldn't understand "why me?", but with the help and support of family and friends I learnt to accept my condition. Over the past 29 years, I have needed and received specialist care and support from several consultants and the Epilepsy Society and will continue to do so for the rest of my life. I have therefore decided that as I will only ever run 1 marathon, it will be the Virgin London Marathon 2020 where I will be raising awareness for the charity and funds for the ongoing research into epilepsy and treatment of people with the condition. Thank you for your support in advance.[/p]
