It means a lot to me to raise awareness of this vital cause, in the UK, in Australia and around the world.  As SUDEP Action’s first International Ambassador, I know that many epilepsy deaths can be prevented with better knowledge about risk, and I am keen to do what I can with the platform I have to make this happen.
