The wonderful Daisy Garland charity came into our lives when our daughter Erika was two years old. She lived with devastating epilepsy which had not responded to many medications and ruled our lives with its unpredictability. With the support of the amazing Daisy Garland dieticians Erika went on the ketogenic diet which transformed her and our quality of life. While she never attained complete freedom from seizures she was finally able to engage with the world and make the most of her short and precious life. Seven years later The Daisy Garland continues to support our family, and so many others, and we will always be grateful for that day when we realised there is hope for children with severe epilepsy.
