Could you help with our genetic research by sharing your story?
We need to demonstrate to the government and through the media, the huge impact that seizures can have on a person's life, affecting education, employment, relationships, family life and the ability to drive.
The new project will build on our ongoing genetic research. We need to put forward compelling stories that illustrate just how vital this research is and the difference it could make to many of the 600,000 people in this country who live with epilepsy.
We want to hear from you about the difference that research could make to your life.
We would specifically like to hear from people who continue to have seizures in spite of their medication or other forms of treatment such as vagus nerve stimulation, surgery and the ketogenic diet.
If you would be happy to share your story through television, radio, print media and social media, please:
- fill in our online form
- download a pdf of the form here and send to: Press Office, Epilepsy Society, Chesham Lane, Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire SL9 0RJ.
- email firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of the form to send to us at the above address.
We are looking forward to hearing from you.
