charlie's story

Charlie was diagnosed with epilepsy when he was just 2 years old. The diagnosis has had a massive impact on the whole family, especially mum, Natalie, and Grandma Clare.

Thanks to our supporters, we've been able to help Charlie and his family when they've needed us most. Please consider setting up a regular gift today.

Thank you so much for your lovely email and the superb information pack I received. Trying to learn and understand more about epilepsy helps to reassure us. As well as my young grandson Charlie recently being diagnosed with epilepsy, my cousin also had the condition and stayed at Epilepsy Society towards the end of his young life, when his seizures became difficult to manage. We visited him frequently and our whole family was so impressed with the amazing work being done. Sad that we need you again, but reassuring that you're still there for everyone.  Thank you again - your kind words mean a lot at a stressful time.
