Latest News from Tia's Treasures

As 2019 is coming to an end we thought we would update you on what the Tia's Treasures Team has been up to.

Since 2018 when Toby the youngest member of the Team was diagnosed with Epilepsy after 5 Tonic Clonic Seizures resulting in 999 calls and trips to hospital we have focused on raising awareness for Epilepsy as well as raising funds for Young Epilepsy and Seizure Alarms, we funded Seizure Alarm number 13 in July and would love to fund Seizure Alarm number 14 by the end of November as November is Epilepsy Awareness month.

Toby is now 2 and his Tonic Clonic Seizures are quite controlled but he still has Focal Seizures and Clonic Seizures a lot of which are at night so we realise the importance of Seizure Alarms for peace of mind.

Toby has also been diagnosed with Allergies, Restless Legs Syndrome and has had a couple of hospital stays and reoccurring Chest Infections.

Nearly 8 years on and Tia is still working hard raising awareness and fundraising for Epilepsy along with her Mum, Dad and 5 Brothers Alex 15, Adam 10, Jamie 9, Tommy 3 and Toby 1.


Tia recently made and sold over 100 purple bracelets for Purple Day and held a raffle at her Academy, Ormiston Venture with some fantastic prizes from various local companies.

Over £200 was raised for Young Epilepsy.

We have just funded our 9th Seizure Alarm for an 8 year old boy called DeeJay with Epilepsy, sadly DeeJay's baby brother died when he went into Epileptic Status at just a few months old.

So far Tia has raised over £500 for Young Epilepsy, £200 for The East of England and funded 2 Pulse Oximeters, 3 Brio Wrist Alarms, 1 Alert It Mattress Alarm, 1 Emfit Mattress Alarm, 1 Empatica Embrace Wrist Alarm and 2 Cameras to monitor those with Nocturnal Seizures.

Toby's original diagnosis back in May 2018 was Focal Seizures and Focal Motor Seizures which generalise into Tonic Clonics, since then he has been on daily medication but still has various types of seizures, Myclonus, treated for Asthma and now undergoing investigations for food allergies or intollerances but he remains a happy mischievous toddler.

As November was National Epilepsy Awareness Month Tia created a flyer with information regarding Epilepsy highlighting the seriousness of it and that there is no cure to be given out and displayed you may have spotted it in local shops.
