To raise money for a much needed Diagnostic Assessment for Epilepsy for our Son Liam, to be assessed at the Young Epilepsy Assessment Unit

by Fiona Smith in Southwater, England, United Kingdom

We are fundraising for our Son Liam who has Epilepsy. He was diagnosed in 2013 when he was just 5 years old with Absent seizures but has had various kinds of seizures over the years. Liam has had many EEG'S, but hasn't had a full Diagnostic Assessment.

For some time now we have been hoping to give Liam a chance of a place at the Young Epilepsy Assessment Centre for a full assessment, to see if there's anything else going on and what kind of medication he should be on. We know how much Liam would benefit from the much needed tests, and help he would gain from the Centre. We are sure that they can diagnose some of Liam's unseen symptoms which may have previously been overlooked at the numerous hospital visits he has had in the past.

Liam has many other complex needs such as Global Developmental Delay, ADHD, Dyspraxia, and Learning Disabilities.

Now Liam is getting older, his epilepsy patterns have changed, sometimes to a point that often his medication doesn't always work properly, this can be a common thing for children or adults with epilepsy.

To have these thorough tests done at Young Epilepsy Assessment Centre, which would initially in the beginning last between 3 to 5 days, and costing in the region of £10,000. We really could do with as much help in fundraising as possible.   

Thank You all for your kind donations, this will help towards our Son getting the assessments he needs to have done at Young Epilepsy.   

Forever Grateful,

Fiona and Andy X
