I was first introduced to HOPE in 2016, shortly after my son, then 12 had been diagnosed with Epilepsy. Like many other families, it hit us out of the blue and we knew little about the condition.
There were many sleepless nights, much worry and frustration. It was also a very isolating and lonely time with no one to talk to who really understood.
Through HOPE I have connected with other parents who have been through similar experiences.
Speaking to other parents who “get it”can really help when things are tough.
