FND Awareness Day UK – 25th March 2020 | Lauren’s Story

My name is Lauren. 2 years ago I was a full time dance student, part time dance teacher and travelling for dance competitions and performances.

One day woke up having a seizure and since then have 3-6 seizures EVERY SINGLE DAY. I have also had a functional stroke and in 2019 woke up paralysed from the waist down. My life has completely changed BUT I carry on pushing to be stronger, happier and raise awareness for FND through my social media’s: @youmefnd.

I also won the ‘warrior’ SHE award 2020 for my journey with FND. Always staying positive to kick FND’s butt and get dancing again!
