WITH her daughter diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of eight, Kendal de Graaf knows first hand just how much a diagnosis can change a family.
She also knows that support from organisations and families can make a huge difference, which has prompted her to raise money and awareness for Epilepsy Action Australia.
“Sachi was diagnosed with epilepsy four years ago, and it was a huge change to our family life but fortunately Sachi has had the support and been able to be medicated and lives a good life,” she said.
Ms de Graaf said that Sachi’s experience motivated her to hold a go purple for epilepsy fundraiser at her Applecross salon on Saturday, March 23.
“Some people are still frightened by epilepsy and don’t know how to help people if they have a seizure, so I want to hold a fundraiser to help raise funds and awareness of Epilepsy Action Australia,” she said.
