Mission Statement

We help children reach their full potential after brain surgery to stop seizures.

Description

Each year, approximately 45,000 children in the United States are diagnosed with epilepsy. For approximately 30% of these children, the seizures are drug-resistant . If the seizures can be localized to part or one side of the brain, then surgery to remove the lesion causing the seizures, or larger procedures where part of the brain - sometimes up to half - is disconnected or removed, is an option to stop the epilepsy.

Our organization helps children who have had brain surgery to stop seizures throughout the lifespan.
