Helen Hollis, 47, suffered over 40 epilepsy attacks a month and was advised to undergo a high risk surgery that included the removal of a part of her right temporal lobe. The mother of two finally managed to secure her degree after eight years of studying part time for the BSc (Hons) Psychology and Counselling Studies degree at the University of Derby.

The Nottinghamshire resident was clearly happy with the degree and said that she was determined not to give in to the condition.

""It will be without doubt one of the proudest moments of my life and I was determined never to give up and give in to epilepsy", she said.
