Emma's story

Emma Johnstone had experienced partial seizures since the age of seven. She underwent brain surgery for temporal lobe epilepsy 10 years ago to remove the scarred area of her brain that was causing her seizures and has been seizure free ever since. She is now a qualified nurse and has a two-year-old son, Archie.

Emma said: 'I'm so lucky to be where I am now, thanks to Professor John Duncan and everyone at Epilepsy Society. If I hadn't had that operation I'm not sure my life would have been quite the same. Archie is gorgeous.'
