Our dear colleague Jennifer was diagnosed with left temporal lobe epilepsy 12 years ago. Since then, she have had numerous MIR scans, EEG monitoring and video telemetry. She is now raising money for epilepsy action in order to raise awareness and help fund scientific studies in the hope to one day cure epilepsy. She said: "Epilepsy is not something that is talked about a lot, 500,000 people are affected by epilepsy in the UK alone. My hope is that one day first aid courses will include what to do if someone is having a seizure as I’m sure many of you as did I, not know what to do if someone has a seizure in front of you."
