Name: Georgia Tye
Age: 23
Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: Norwich
Campaign: To encourage an understanding of epilepsy

I have epilepsy which is a condition that, for me, causes daily seizures.

I had my first seizure when I was 7. Now, I can never be on my own because there is a concern that those around me wouldn’t always know what to do.

My situation is uncommon. There are different types of epilepsy and with Fixers, I want to help others understand that. It’s not something to be afraid of.

I feel that it’s important that people know how to react, in case someone with the condition needs assistance.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:

 

Alexandra Morris Alex Randall
Catherine Watson Daniella Tye
Jodie Tubbs Robson Summers
Samantha Stork Thomas Oldridge
Zara Bensley

Dr Jeffrey Cochius, Neurologist Consultant at the hospital, supports my Fixers project. He agreed to be interviewed to appear in my broadcast film.
