My Life Story

My name is Kasam Parkar and, I am a 49-year-old living with Epilepsy. I suffered my first seizure at the age of 23 and went undiagnosed in hospital for nearly 2 weeks. Normal life now consists of hospital visits, ambulance rides, recovery from injuries – broken nose, fractured shoulder, cuts forehead, loss of memory for over 5 years.

I have also felt distanced from the life I formerly enjoyed. After many years, new hospitals, new doctors, new medications, altering life habits and an overwhelming amount of support from my family and close friends, my seizures are currently controlled by medication, my seizures can be erratic and occasions I have suffer clusters which exhorts me for the rest of the day.

Few people are actually willing to step up and talk about epilepsy. My mission is to spread awareness and be an advocate for those who do not have a voice or are afraid to speak out.

I want those living with epilepsy to have a voice, to find the courage within themselves and become an advocate supporting me and each other in raising awareness.

Advocacy for Epilepsy

I feel the need for advocacy for epilepsy hence I’ve decided to start this epilepsy charity. Many people are unaware of epilepsy and how many people it effects. Additionally, because of the stigma so often attached to it, many people living with epilepsy try there hardest to hide their condition.

We need to make the world aware of the impact epilepsy has on so many and find a cure. Without a cure, there are far too many people who will never have relief from seizures.

The Voice for Epilepsy Mission

The purpose of this charity is to raise awareness of epilepsy, building a community of shared experiences giving individuals a voice to connect and feel supported.

The Voice for Epilepsy aims to help individuals with epilepsy to connect and fight; to ensure not another moment is lost to seizures. To offer educate about seizure recognition, seizure first aid and increase understanding about epilepsy in general. To help combat the isolation often associated with epilepsy and to encourage individuals and families to start opening their windows to the world without feeling vulnerable. To establish a principle that epilepsy creates unity and builds strong bonds.

We need to educate people what to do and what not to do when someone is having a seizure, to encourage concerned authorities to take action to improve the lives of people with epilepsy and to provide communities, schools and workplaces with sessions, courses, seminars and presentations to educate on the basics of epilepsy.

Together, we can spread epilepsy awareness!
