Dedicated to helping improve the quality of life for families affected by epilepsy.
"The gift cards allowed us to focus on our daughter's medical needs and not worry about how we were going to pay for dinner that night or how much parking was going to cost at the end of our long stay."
"The Plotkins are angels and their foundation is one that deserves to be recognized and supported. They are people, just like you and me, and they're simply helping people during a time of need."
HOW WE HELP FAMILIES
Supplying meals gift cards to families of children who are patients at Children's Hospital Boston or UMass Memorial Children's Medical Center.
Donating gas cards to be used by families who are transporting children to doctor's appointments and hospital visits related to epilepsy.
Providing financial assistance for the purchase of therapeutic equipment used in the treatment of children suffering from the delayed development caused by the brain malformation and seizures - items such as bathseats, seizure monitors, and other items not covered or paid for by insurance.
Purchasing ketogenetic diet supplies including scales and required books.
Bridging the gap for fixed expenses including electricity bills, rent, and car insurance.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Please consider all the families out there that do not have insurance, or have insurance policies that will not pay for medical equipment for these children. These kids need special equipment to regain their skills, and help them get stronger after surgery. Not all families are fortunate to have the money to pay the $9 per day for parking, or the money to pay to eat out every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner while staying at the hospital with their child. Some do not have family and friends close by to bring them home cooked meals.
Any donation, in any amount will help us provide free parking, hot meals, and medical/therapy equipment to these families.
EVERY DONATION, NO MATTER THE SIZE, HELPS A CHILD AND FAMILY IN NEED. WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
