Bendigo mother Ellie Bartram almost lost her daughter Georgia after an epileptic seizure last year. Georgia, 9, now has an acquired brain injury.
She was forced to relearn how to walk, talk and carry out simple daily tasks such as eating.
“The needs of my daughter have become quite substantial,” Ms Bartram said.
“This time last year Georgia had a massive epileptic seizure and she nearly died.
“This can give you an example of how serious epilepsy can become.
“Her entire left brain was damaged as a result of the seizure and it left her with what’s called hemiplegia, which is like paralysis, all on the right side.”
