Many of you may know that our daughter Orla began to have seizures before Christmas and was diagnosed with epilepsy.  Not just epilepsy, but drug resistant epilepsy, which means that Orla continues to have daily seizures even though her medication is at the maximum dose.

Orla is currently still going through testing to see what the cause of her epilepsy is.  The next step will be for Orla to try the ketogenic diet.  This is where The Daisy Garland come into things as they fund specialist ketogenic dietitians to treat children who have difficult to control epilepsy with a special low carbohydrate diet, that can help reduce seizures.  

The Daisy Garland give lots of help and support to families whose children suffer with drug resistant epilepsy.  We have found them so helpful since Orla was diagnosed.   So please, please, be generous and help us reach our £200 target.  Thank you.
