Mission Statement

Our Mission

  • To Raise Money for camp fees, scholarships for trade schools and higher education as well as provide financial relief for struggling families

Description

The Hemispherectomy Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was founded to provide emotional, financial, and educational support to individuals and their families who have undergone, or will undergo, a hemispherectomy or similar brain surgery. 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.
