Short Story

20-year-old Erikos’ life turned upside down in the worst way possible, when 5 years ago, he started to manifest epileptic seizures. Today, Erikos is receiving a combination of anti-epileptic medication, while his condition is closely monitored by an experienced neurologist who specializes in cases of epilepsy. At this point, the seizures come almost daily and without any warning signs. The episodes last for several minutes, and Erikos often injures himself, since he loses consciousness and falls to the ground. According to the doctor who monitors his condition, his family needs to procure the proper equipment, in order to create a safe environment within the house premises, which will protect him during his sudden falls. At the same time, the young man needs to be regularly subjected to tests, which are essential for monitoring his health.

Erikos is suffering from a severe form of epilepsy and his physical safety is compromised!

Campaign Story

20-year-old Erikos’ life turned upside down in the worst way possible, when 5 years ago, he started to manifest epileptic seizures. He was only 15 years old when he experienced his first episode. The young man collapsed to the ground and started seizing, while his eyes had rolled back for several minutes. His mother was horrified and immediately rushed him to the local hospital. Erikos had to be hospitalized for a long period of time, his tests however, didn’t reveal any findings to explain the reason behind the seizures he was experiencing.  

Today, Erikos is receiving a combination of anti-epileptic medication, while his condition is closely monitored by an experienced neurologist who specializes in cases of epilepsy. At this point, the seizures come almost daily and without any warning signs. The episodes last for several minutes, and Erikos often injures himself, since he loses consciousness and falls to the ground. According to the doctor who monitors his condition, his family needs to procure the proper equipment, in order to create a safe environment within the house premises, which will protect him during his sudden falls. At the same time, the young man needs to be regularly subjected to tests, which are essential for monitoring his health.

After all these years, Erikos’ family has found themselves in a dead end and they are unable to cope with the cost of the safety equipment their child needs. Furthermore, Erikos’ mother is unemployed, since it is too dangerous to leave her son unattended.  

Erikos’ life has changed dramatically. The 20-year-old young man cannot drive, or swim, or work. Today, he needs our help, since his physical safety is compromised. So let us all join forces and stand by this young man, whose life has turned upside down so unfairly. Together, for Erikos!
