Tonia Buxton is a presenter, author, columnist, foodie and beauty expert as well as a wife and mum to four children!

We welcomed her to The Society in 2016.

I was introduced to the Encephalitis Society by my friends Mathew Bose and Rebecca Adlington. When I first learnt about encephalitis, I just wanted to run away and hear no more as it was far too scary for me. I feared for my children. However, I realised that was not an honourable way to behave. The more I researched, the more I realised the importance of raising awareness of this terrible condition. I have listened to the stories of survivors and also the stories of the loved ones of those who did not survive. It was then I felt I would like to help where I can.
