Sam’s own personal story about living with Epilepsy, Autism and a Rare Genetic Syndrome – is told in a new book titled “After That Day – Stories of Epilepsy” published by Sofie’s Journey and launched in November 2019, at the 2019 Epilepsy Awareness & Education Expo, a free 3-day event during the Epilepsy Awareness Day at Disneyland® Resort (EADDL).
This beautiful, rich colour, hardback book contains forty- five personal accounts of people who have been forever changed, by seizures. These stories offer a challenging look at survival, and in many cases, a cure. Each story features amazing, introspective photos which compliment and tell the story as well as the written words.
One out of every twenty-six people will have epilepsy in their lifetime. It can come when you least expect it, and no one is exempt from its grasp.
