What we do

The Daisy Garland charity was set up in November 2004 to keep Daisy's memory alive and to help other little children like her.

We fund an increasing number of Ketogenic Dietitians who work in National Health Hospitals treating hundreds of children with intractable epilepsy.

We are the only UK charity funding Ketogenic Dietitians - each dietitian costs up to £47,000 per annum. If you think you could help us fund our next Daisy Garland Ketogenic Dietitian go to HOW YOU CAN HELP. Be in touch today.

Introducing our new Dietitian

Marian Devlin

Oct 7th, 2011

My name is Marian Devlin and I work with a supportive team of Paediatric Dietitians at Royal Derby Hospital in Derby, where we also have an experienced Children’s Epilepsy Nurse and Paediatric Consultants. We are all interested in the ketogenic diet.

We are delighted to have received funding from The Daisy Garland charity to develop ketogenic diet therapy within Royal Derby Hospital. Currently we have 6 young people on the ketogenic diet with one other due to start the diet this autumn. Our aim is to offer the ketogenic diet to many more appropriate referrals and to work on tailoring and ‘fine-tuning’ the diet for our current patients to achieve improved results.

Our grateful thanks goes to David and Sara and all those who donate to The Daisy Garland charity.

In addition to my work with the Paediatric team I also work with young people with diabetes and much younger (pre-term) babies at Royal Derby Hospital. I am married with two grown-up children and enjoy cooking in my spare time
