Our Community of Care grant is intended to provide financial assistance to families in our pediatric epilepsy surgery community, including adults who had epilepsy surgery in childhood, who are in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The funds can be used to assist with continuity of education, medical care, and basic needs.
Thanks to a very generous grant from Global Genes, this grant allows for a financial award of up to $500 for qualifying expenses as follows:
- Access to distance learning support, such as tutoring, online education programs, educational applications, tablet (iPad), computer, printer, internet access/WiFi;
- Telemedicine resources (including internet access/WiFi, smart phone, tablet, translator fees);
- Career counseling resources (such as in person or remote career counselor, internet access/WiFi, smart phone, tablet);
- Basic living expenses;
- Transportation costs to medical appointments (such as airfare and related travel costs for epilepsy or orthopedic surgery)
