Unbelievably 1,200 people are dying from epilepsy every year – 3 people every single day. The majority die suddenly and unexpectedly from fatal seizures that could be prevented. Through research we can discover more about epilepsy and could tailor treatments to control people's seizures. Our genomic research can change this shocking statistic and – quite simply - save lives.
Amelia Roberts (above) developed epilepsy age 16 and in five years had 830 seizures. Aged just 21 Amelia tragically died at home on the 20th December 2018.
Amelia's father Hamish Roberts said, "Her tragic death may have been prevented if we had been able to control Amelia's seizures. It is too late for our daughter but as a family we are determined to make sure that other families are not swallowed up by the grief that has consumed us."
Our research can make a difference to families like the Roberts. Add your name to support epilepsy research.
