SUDEP takes another life

I just found out yesterday that a 21 year old woman died from a seizure last month. She lived in the same city that the student that just died lived in. This is the 5th Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy death that I know of in 4 years including my daughter.

I send my condolences, too. There has to be a much better quality of life for those with epilepsy. This is unacceptable. Hopefully they will improve medications and treatments that maintain and improve our lives. And prevent Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy once and for all.
