To All,

What wonderful news!

I am pleased to read the above and am one of your great supporters through Facebook! I have had epilepsy now for 41 years and have found strength from within to keep positive.

Please continue to go forward and help all with epilepsy... We need more Societies to spread more awareness!

Please feel free to contact me further should anyone wish to.

This is Fantastic News - I have Epilepsy and am National Vice Chairperson for Epilepsy South Africa. I started the first epilepsy support group, Epicare, in the Cape Province in 1986, which I ran for 26 years. I wish you all the success and don't hesitate to call should you need advice.

Regards Tim

We are busy with awareness at schools, I`m joined by five young people living with epilepsy and we also hand out seizure first aid pamphlets.
