Team story

<p><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Four&nbsp;girls up a mountain!</span></strong><br /><br /><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Machu Picchu Inca Trail<br /></span></strong><br />The four of us are escaping&nbsp;to&nbsp;Latin America for a few months away from reality!<br /><br />In between sunning ourselves on beaches, we will be trekking&nbsp;the world famous Inca Trail in&nbsp;Peru. Machu Picchu is a 15th century Inca ruin, one of the most recognisable&nbsp;landmarks of South America and a new 7th wonder of the world. <br /><br />We&nbsp;are fundraising in memory of Jenny's sister,&nbsp;Ellie Davis, for the charity Epilepsy Bereaved.<br /><br /><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Ellie's story...<br /></span></strong>&nbsp;<br />Ellie&nbsp;tragically died after an Epileptic seizure&nbsp;on February 9th 2010.&nbsp;At only 18, it was very unexpected.&nbsp;There is no real explanation as to why she died, but the &lsquo;SUDEP&rsquo; (Sudden Death in Epilepsy) phenomenon kills roughly 500 people per year, in Britain alone. You can see from the photos that&nbsp;Ellie was beautiful and&nbsp;full of life. Nobody was expecting this. She is missed every day by her family and&nbsp;friends;&nbsp;in her short life&nbsp;she managed to have an impact on all who knew her.<br />&nbsp;<br />On January 25th, to mark almost one year without her, Jenny, Beth, Claudia and Lucy will be trekking the Inca Trail&nbsp;Macchu Picchu in Peru. <br /><br /><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">About the charity...<br /></span></strong><br />Epilepsy bereaved is the obvious choice for our donations; below is their manifesto:</p> <p>Epilepsy Bereaved is the only charity dedicated to research and prevention of SUDEP and other epilepsy related&nbsp;deaths and the support and enablement of people affected by these deaths.</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;">What we do:</span></p> <p>-Support people affected by SUDEP and other epilepsy related deaths</p> <p>-Reduce risks in people with epilepsy by information and education about SUDEP</p> <p>-Campaign for improvements to epilepsy services</p> <p>-Campaign for improvements to the investigation of SUDEP and other epilepsy deaths</p> <p>-Conduct and fund research into SUDEP and other epilepsy deaths</p> <p>-Enable people affected by SUDEP and other epilepsy deaths to be involved in&nbsp;the cause<br /><br />All donations, however great or small, will be hugely appreciated and go to a very worthy cause.<br /><br /><br />Thanks from all of us,<br /><br />Jenny, Beth, Claudia and Lucy x</p>
