About Stopping Childhood Seizures With Brain Surgery2021-11-26T03:13:16+00:00

NOVEMBER IS EPILEPSY AWARENESS MONTH

Give today.

Your generous donation will fund life-changing resources for children with drug-resistant seizures. Help us raise awareness about pediatric epilepsy surgery, support our impactful programs, and inspire and fund critical research to understand – and improve – outcomes after surgery.

UNDERSTAND

The risks of drug-resistant seizures

Drug-resistant seizures can have serious consequences, especially if they begin in infancy. Intractable epilepsy can cause development to freeze in time or regress significantly. Epilepsy surgery is no longer considered a last resort for children with medication-resistant seizures, but it’s important to understand effects of surgery and outcomes. We help you understand the risks and benefits of various neurosurgeries to stop seizures so that you can make an informed decision about whether epilepsy surgery is right for your child.

The risks of drug-resistant seizures

Drug-resistant seizures can be catastrophic to a child’s development, especially if they begin in infancy. Intractable epilepsy can cause development to freeze in time or regress significantly. Epilepsy surgery is no longer considered a last resort for children with refractory epilepsy, but there are risks associated with brain surgery, some which can be significant. We help you understand the risks and benefits of various brain surgeries to stop seizures so that you can make an informed decision about whether brain surgery is right for your child.

Don’t miss this important symposium which will address disparities in access to neurorehabilitation after hemispherectomy, differences in functional outcomes, and evidence-based interventions. Sharing data from our Global Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery Registry, our founder joins neuroscientists from some of the country’s top research institutions in this first symposium about hemispherectomy at the upcoming meeting of the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine.

Advocacy and Collaboration

We understand that there are limits to what we can accomplish on our own, which is why we collaborate with key organizations to advance our mission. This helps us create more impact for the community of children we serve.
