We’re a community of people working to normalise Epilepsy and free young adults from stigma, limitations and fear.
On the 3rd of May 2019, Joanne and Andrew lost their son, Peter Doody, as a result of his epilepsy. His death was sudden and unexpected. Peter was 21 years of age and was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 17.
We know, from first hand experience, that there is a lack of information and support available to young adults between the ages of 17 and 30 with epilepsy, as well as their carers and families. By raising money through events and fundraisers we aim to change this, so that we may provide day to day holistic support and help prevent other sudden unexpected deaths from epilepsy amongst young adults.
