After suffering a suspected epileptic seizure while out in the surf, Raffy (Olivia Deeble)
is this week rescued in the nick of time by her older brother Justin (James Stewart), with John (Shane Withington) and Mason (Orpheus Pledger) helping to pull her to the safety of the shore.
After undergoing tests at the hospital and being given the all-clear, Raffy finds herself sharing a candid chat with Alex. And she’s surprised when Alex reveals that she is also epileptic. What’s more, says Alex, she suffered a seizure during an HSC exam – and yet still managed to go on to fulfil her dream career.
