Seizures were crushing Evan’s dream of becoming a Paralympian. He is now seizure free thanks to our world leading research.

Evan’s seizures started when he was just four years old.

He was seriously injured by his seizures and hospitalised countless times. After 15 years, Evan’s epilepsy was finally diagnosed, but his seizures still weren’t controlled. Evan found life incredibly difficult, and his dream of competing in the Paralympics was slipping away.

Evan was then referred to our world leading research team who identified the medication needed to reduce his seizures. Evan has now been seizure free for 18 months and he can focus on making it to the 2024 Paralympics.

200,000 people in the UK still don’t have the right medication to control their seizures. Donating to our research today will help us develop personalised treatments to control seizures and change lives.
