In Your Words

Katie

Our five-year-old daughter Addie acquired a brain injury in 2014. Life has certainly not been the same since. Living with daily, uncontrollable seizures and a complete change in personality makes family life more challenging, especially for Addie's twin sister Izzy. Finding the right kind of support has been difficult and there aren't enough facilities to give Addie the life she deserves. She doesn't attend any after-school/weekend clubs because of her complex needs and her life is markedly different to that of her sister's. it's heart-breaking. My hope for the future is that one day there will be more opportunities for awesome children like Addie to excel.
