Hello loves! To celebrate Valentines week, we are spreading love stories from former interns. Today we feature Marie Davis which was written by Swinburne University graduate Chris Paduano. Marie met her husband Roger in 1967 while living at the Victorian Bureau of Epilepsy (now the Epilepsy Foundation of Victoria). She lived there with five other girls, all sufferers of epilepsy who had chosen to move to Melbourne from the country. They met because Roger, a sufferer of severe epilepsy, would wait for his mother to drive him home after work. His mother had been responsible for starting the foundation because she felt that the help offered to epilepsy sufferers, including her son, was inadequate. Marie and Roger were engaged in 1968 and married later that year.https://www.celebratelivinghistory.com.au/marie-davis/
