In memory of Maddie Gill

By Debra Tibbotts

In memory of our beautiful Maddie, we have have set up this link to raise funds to assist and support families of SUDEP and the ongoing research into Epilepsy.Β 

Maddie was a great advocate of supporting Purple Day which is a worldwide annual event on 26 March dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy and raising funds.

Over 200,000 people will acquire epilepsy in their lifetime. The cause of SUDEP is still unclear and not well understood.Β  Research is ongoing and vital funds are required to assist in further investigation.

In lieu of flowers we would appreciate your assistance for this vital research.Β  We would like to thank everyone for their loving thoughts and support during this very difficult time.

Many thanks
Deb, Chris and Lara

My heart goes out to you for your very sad loss of your beautiful daughter so suddenly taken from Epilepsy! We now have our Grandson-in-Law as a long time Epilepsy sufferer and just last year our 3 year old Great Grand-daughter was also diagnosed with Epilepsy - so we all live with this fear day in and day out as well! Thank you for raising funds for an Epilepsy CURE, wish I could donate more, but being on Age Pensions it's not so easy, but hope our small contribution helps in some small way towards much needed research! Fly high gorgeous girl!

Reading Maddie’s story has really hit home! Our 18 year old daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy at 17, and it just came out of the blue so we’re still learning about epilepsy. We’ve never even heard of SUDEP so really appreciate you sharing your story Debra, thank you x

My gorgeous little cousin Maddie. Finding what to say is so difficult because I can’t imagine a world that you’re not a part of. I’ll always remember you as a cute, chubby toddler hunting for Easter eggs in the garden with me, the spirited kid who kicked her sister during a fight just after she had ankle surgery (and then laughing with you that you would be an amazing contestant in the hunger games), the funny teenager asking me shyly what the c word was and the most beautiful adult inside and out who will always hold the most special place in my heart. I will miss you every single day my darling. See you again one day
