EPILEPSY FOUNDATION OF VIC ...

Posted May 22 2010 10:02pm

EPILEPSY FOUNDATION OF VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA


Four of the five members of the Walker family have epilepsy, and the youngest son Ronan also has severe developmental delay. When the Walkers went to their first epilepsy family camp, their mother Christine says it was ‘just extraordinary’. They didn’t have to apologise that Ronan was wearing a helmet to protect his head in a tonic clonic seizure, or worry in case any of the family had a seizure. They felt immediate acceptance and came away feeling part of a network of families who know what it is like to live with epilepsy.
Your donation makes our services possible, so I urge you to donate to our June Appeal. Your contribution – as much as you can afford – provides the resources that makes these services possible: camps for families, individual and family counselling services, education and training, resources and publications, research, support groups and community education.
Please make your donation and really make a difference to the lives of families like the Walker’s who ask nothing more than opportunity for their children, and understanding from the community.
