Our Patron - Wally Lewis

Rugby league legend and our Patron - Wally Lewis is a wonderful ambassador for Epilepsy Queensland Inc. and for our epilepsy community.


Wally is not only a sports champion, but a champion in raising awareness and advocating for understanding of epilepsy in the community. He generously gives his time to appear as a guest speaker at Epilepsy Queensland functions and never hesitates to spend time with our members and supporters. 

Wally recounts his personal experience of epilepsy in his book (co-authored by Neil Cadigan) “Out of the Shadows” which is available here.

You can also find out more about Wally in the interview below, in which he discusses his inspiration, achievements, experience of epilepsy and his hopes for the future of epilepsy care.
