Local Charity raising the awareness of FACS
In simple terms those women under medication for epilepsy choosing to have children run a fairly substantial risk of introducing ongoing health problems to their children. Some medications are worse than others introducing a much greater probability of a problem developing.
The charity based in South Oxhey is called OACS (organisation for Anti-Convulsant Syndrome). The website is here. There has been a long list of court appearances in an attempt to seek compensation from the pharmaceutical companies who produce these drugs. Being a small charity there is little that can be done from a legal perspective, especially when the pharma companies can continue legal cases for years and not bat an eyelid about costs.
Please do support the events below, both are on the 14th May... click the images or these links to go to the website for further information. Raising awareness talks (OACS Reception) ... OACS Charity Gala evening
