Team Jo Epilepsy Foundation started to be built in 2013 and finally became a charity of its own in March 2014. Our aim here at Team Jo headquarters is to raise as much awareness and money for Epilepsy as we can. The money will be used to make a "real" difference to those with epilepsy by working closely with Drs and local hospitals, and also raising awareness for Epilepsy and the seriousness of the condition in the South East of England. This money will also go towards making a difference to those with or with family / friends with epilepsy who need the care to be more localised. All money that is raised will go towards helping patients with epilepsy, buying much needed equipment, researching drugs, and information about epilepsy.
Faye has been supporting the charity since March 2014. A published author and publisher. She is donating a percentage of every E-book sold to Team Jo Epilepsy Foundation so dig deep and get those books ordered.
