In December 2018 CFK donated $25,000 to the Epilepsy Centre of SA and NT to purchase 25 seizure monitors for allocation to parents of children diagnosed with Epilepsy. To refresh your memory the monitors are attached to kids beds and detect the signs of seizures to alert parents while they are sleeping. The monitors have been proven to save lives.
We received some wonderful feedback from one of the parents who received a monitor as a result of our donation,
“I just want to say a massive thank you! We were recipients of a seizure mat from the epilepsy centre and informed that it was donated by cops for kids. Thank you so much! You have changed our life! I’m a single mum with a 15 month old who has just been diagnosed with epilepsy and has started having seizures in his sleep so now I can actually get some sleep without all the stress and worry so again thank you. You are all angels!”
Such nice words from a parent facing adversity, we don’t consider ourselves angels, that accolade belongs to all of our members who donate their money each fortnight to help kids in need. Well done team CFK!
