Another tragedy possibly related to epilepsy. The official cause of death is not known yet; however, the circumstances described in the attached article from CNN sound very familiar to so many of the SUDEP stories we have heard about over the past several months. The Patrick Ring Foundation sends our sincerest condolences to Skye’s family and friends…
Too many lives are being lost at much too young an age. As posted previously, 100,510 years of potential life have been lost in the United States due to SUDEP – 2nd only behind stroke (in neurological disorders).
This is a sad story about a young man who passed away from SUDEP. When it came time to purchase the medication he needed to control his seizures at a local CVS, he came up short of the $700 it cost to cover the drugs. He passed away that night after suffering from a seizure.
This is one of the reasons we are striving to support causes that assist victims of Epilepsy in affording their medication. No one should ever have to worry about affording medication. Their lives depend on it.
