She’s a wonderful friend, an active member of my secret research squad, and an incredible inspiration. So it’s no surprise that she is doing the same for thousands of people — people like her, suffering with epilepsy.
Once a successful advertising writer, Phylis now uses her skill to support and inspire…rather than to sell.
I read some of her articles recently. Even for someone who’s never been faced with epilepsy, it brought tears to my eyes. I was so touched reading what my dear friend and so many others have been through — and how helpless it can make them feel.
But Phylis is not one to sit back and take it. She researches tirelessly, and hunts down experts, to find answers. And seems to spend 25 hours a day writing about them!
If you or someone you care about suffers with epilepsy, you can find great advice and support at Phylis’ blog: www.epilepsytalk.com
As one blogger in the UK put it: “Everybody has their specialist subject and this lady is the ultimate ambassador for mine. I have not managed to find any other blogger with such a rich encyclopaedic knowledge of epilepsy. Phylis is using her life experience to educate and inform others about epilepsy. I only wish I could ship her to the UK to meet my consultant, because I think she knows more than he does.”
