She had long suffered from a devastating illness
A few years after getting married, Allison began to suffer from non-epileptic seizures. She also felt an almost complete numbness in her body. Paul says his partner couldn’t eat, drink or go to the toilet without help. After many trips to the hospital and consultations with a few specialists, Allison was finally diagnosed with a functional neurological disorder. According to Paul, who currently lives in Allerton, Allison was “a very kind person with a beautiful heart who did everything she could to help others”.
