luck in his attempt to row the Pacific. He is demonstrating the fact
that epilepsy doesn't have to stop you doing anything that you set your
mind to.
The NSE exists to support people with epilepsy in taking charge of their
own lives and we are always delighted to see people with epilepsy
challenge the misunderstanding that surrounds the condition.
