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 £45,000 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.

Epilepsy affects 1 in every 100 children in the UK

Bailey Williams

> Click here for the original page where you discuss this video with others

This extended 'Living with...' video follows the Williams family, whose eight year old son Bailey has epilepsy. Bailey can have up to 200 seizures a day. Seizures are an electrical discharge in brain, which may be caused by illness or brain damage, but in many cases the cause is unknown. The Williams family have taken many precautions to control Bailey’s seizures; he wears a helmet to protect his head from drop seizures, is on medication, and his bed is fitted with pressure pads that set off an alarm if Bailey has more than seven seconds of movement. Unfortunately there is no cure, but medication is frequently changed to ensure the best control over the disease.

The EB team would like to thank: The Daisy Garland Charity
