Sophias treatment.

Organised for: Sophia

Sophia had her first seizure at 5 weeks old and was diagnosed with epilepsy at 6 weeks old. 

She has had so many blood tests, a lumbar puncture, MRI, ECG, EEG scans and more. On her 6 week birthday we saw our baby girl being sedated so she could have an MRI scan to check there was no brain damage. Thankfully there isn't.

 

At 4 months we were in hospital for 2 weeks due to the number of seizures she was having, resulting in her being too tired and weak to feed. We left hospital with Sophia being so weak she could no longer hold her head up unaided, she was so unhappy and spent most of the days sleeping.

 

At 9 months we got Sophia's genetic results back and unfortunately she has a refractory genetic epilepsy with a mutation of the SCN8A gene resulting in delayed development. We have been told she may never walk or talk.

 

She has just turned 1 and is still unable to sit unaided, walking and talking is still unknown. 

 

We want Sophia to have the best chance possible at having some sort of 'normal' life and need to give her care and treatment to push her and help her development. This isn't cheap, we have already spent nearly £2,000 on treatment and need her to have more.

 

If you have read this and want to help we appreciate every single penny donated to help Sophia to develop as much as possible.

 

Thank you,

Anna and Marcus X
