Program Description

We provide help which includes, but is not limited to: college scholarships, trade school scholarships, camp fees, life-aid equipment, travel expenses, and other aid as approved by the officers.

We are also dedicated to hemispherectomy education, awareness, fundraising, and research of the medical conditions causing intractable epilepsy that lead to surgery and the surgery itself. As the cause of these medical conditions are unknown, much research is needed.
