Meet Sabrina, a young woman living with epilepsy who came to the BC Epilepsy Society offices a couple of months ago. She has been having regular meetings with us ever since and during our meetings we provide support and discuss her struggles with epilepsy and seizures as well as other aspects of her life.
During one of our weekly meetings, we informed Sabrina that the BC Epilepsy Society would be attending the Epilepsy Awareness Day at Disneyland (EADDL) event in November. We also told her that, provided she got her seizures under control and led a healthier lifestyle, she would be able to join us on this trip.
Sabrina was very excited about this opportunity and took her medications as prescribed, limited her unhealthy behaviours and worked very hard to achieve her goals, and was ultimately able to join us in Disneyland for EADDL.
In a video by the BC Epilepsy Society, Sabrina shared her story about her struggles with epilepsy; how the BC Epilepsy Society has helped her with her physical health and her mental well being; and all about her experiences at EADDL. This is a touching story that can inspire people with epilepsy to take control of their life. Check out the video below:
We are very proud to have impacted this young woman's life in such a meaningful way. It just goes to show that even doing something small can make a huge difference in someone’s life.
