I was born with epilepsy and always was having seizures, and as I've grew up my seizures got worse, and after being on more than 3 different types of medicine for my type of epilepsy to try and stop me having fits/seizures.

So 4 years ago when I had a bad seizure and had to go hospital A+E, and after that I had an appointment with the neurologist, and I was lucky to get the opportunity to go to Sheffield Royal Hallamshire hospital and see the neurologist and neurosurgeon and see if I was going to be a good candidate for a operation on my left temporal lobe.

After the tests they explained as I grew up my left temporal lobe didn't grow the same as my right side, so I after the test I was lucky to have the opportunity to have the operation, and since June 2018 I've been seizure free and now hopefully allowed to apply and get my driving license.

Now I'm here to help others. I'm on a mission to raise money, doing anything from marathons to skydives, and hope one day that will help you or some one you know that has epilepsy.
