James is not a patient who has been treated with Epidyolex.
Becoming an adult with Dravet Syndrome (DS)
From the moment of James’ first seizure, at five and half months old, his family immediately knew that life would be challenging. A diagnosis of epilepsy was a step forward, but it wasn’t until James reached six years of age that he was diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome.
James’ family have learnt to identify seizure triggers such as getting overly excited or an increase in temperature. While James continues to make progress into adulthood, his parents are always mindful of the future and don’t want him to be left on his own.
As a young adult, James is outgoing and enjoys school with people who understand Dravet Syndrome and focus on what makes him feel settled, safe and secure. James’ family are proud of his great character and kind and caring nature.
The challenge and motivation for James’ family, teachers and loving support network, will always be to give James the best quality of life possible. New treatments options bring additional hope that his journey will continue to go from strength to strength.
