I'm fundraising for...Layla
In 2021, my daughter Layla was diagnosed with epilepsy.
It started with what we thought was a febrile seizure (common in small children), but after a few more prolonged seizures of 1-2hrs and medication resistant, an EEG confirmed epilepsy.
Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological conditions affecting 50 million people worldwide
Every week in Australia, 280 people are diagnosed with epilepsy and sadly 5 Australians will die from epilepsy each week.
I am raising funds to ensure Queenslanders with epilepsy have access to the support, training, and information they need to live well with epilepsy.
With access to the right treatment around 70% of people with epilepsy can gain control over their seizures
