Dravet Syndrome Awareness Month
09 June 2022
June is Dravet Syndrome awareness month - so what better time to make a positive impact!
Tom and Lauren Truelove, together with a group of 15 other intrepid swimmers, are taking on a huge challenge swimming 2 miles across the icy and choppy Lake Windermere TOMORROW. They are raising money for a small charity called Dravet Syndrome UK, all in the name of their son, Freddie-Bo Truelove.
Some of you may or may not know little Freddie, but for those who don’t, Freddie is a warrior. A real warrior, who also happens to suffer from Dravet syndrome. He suffered his first prolonged seizure at 5 months old, and has had thousands of seizures since then, continuing to be plagued by them on a daily basis. Having tried and failed almost every treatment option, their hope lies with science 🧬 in the inevitable hope of a cure. This is everything. The only thing.
All of the funds raised from this event will be going directly and entirely to research projects, looking to find a cure to this dreadful disease.
Please help them help Freddie and all the other beautiful Dravet syndrome souls by donating anything you can - https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/freddiebossmile
