“After Michael was through with his NECO exam in 2007, while he was asleep in the night, he suddenly shouted from his sleep and since then he has been living with epilepsy.
“His situation is now a big problem and we have spent a lot on him with no result. The sickness had stopped him from going to work because of shame.
