Jasmine was 17, in her last year of school with enough plans to fill several lifetimes. She had an adventurous spirit, loved travelling and was always happy to try something new. She was courageous and all about her friends, horses and animals. Jasmine passed away at 17 years in 2020 from a SUDEP (Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy) while she slept. She had so many things she has missed out on in life. Although Jasmine had frequent seizures for two years prior to her death she was not diagnosed until after her death - her epilepsy did not show up on scans, her seizures looked atypical and she did not respond to trial medications. Her death highlights the desperate need for more understanding and research into diagnosis methods, new medications and SUDEP awareness and prevention. We want to raise money and make a difference for people living with epilepsy, by creating more awareness around SUDEP and fundraising for research into better diagnosis technology and improved medications.
