SkyDive in Dubai

On the 2nd October 2019, I will be completing a SkyDive over the palm in Dubai, to raise funds for the awareness of Epilepsy.

The reason I am doing this is because my dad suffers with Epilepsy. He suffered his first seizure at the age of 23 and went undiagnosed in hospital for nearly 2 weeks. His normal life now consists of hospital visits, ambulance rides, recovery from injuries – broken nose, fractured shoulder, loss of memory for over 5 years etc. From his struggles my dad has set up a charity ‘The Voice For Epilepsy’ where his ultimate aim is to eradicate the stigma that is often associated with epilepsy and truly educate people on the condition. He also wishes to teach people who suffer from epilepsy not to try and hide their condition or be ashamed of it. At this current time, there isn’t much media coverage or awareness on Epilepsy or what to do if someone has an attack. Your funds will help build resources to educate people on epilepsy and what to do if someone has a seizure.

MORE ABOUT THE CHARITY

thevoiceforepilepsy.co.uk

The purpose of this program is to help individuals with epilepsy to connect and fight; to ensure not another moment is lost to seizures. To offer educate about seizure recognition, seizure first aid and increase understanding about epilepsy in general. To help combat the isolation often associated with epilepsy and to encourage individuals and families to start opening their windows to the world without feeling vulnerable. To establish a principle that epilepsy creates unity and builds strong bonds. We need to educate people what to do and what not to do when someone is having a seizure, to encourage concerned authorities to take action to improve the lives of people with epilepsy and to provide communities, schools and workplaces with sessions, courses, seminars and presentations to educate on the basics of epilepsy.
