The popular RTE documentary series "This is Me" will focus on epilepsy in the next episode, airing on RTE 1 on Monday the 6th July 2009 on at 7.30pm.

The programme focuses on Emma Beamish from Dublin who was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 14. She is currently a member of the Irish Women's Cricket team and recently wrote an article in Epilepsy News, Brainwave's quarterly newsletter about her experiences of living with and managing her epilepsy.

Emma agreed to allow the cameras to access her life over the past few months to make the programme. Brainwave is very grateful to her for taking part and for helping to help raise awareness of epilepsy.

Don't forget to tune in next week at 7.30 on RTE1.
