The Hemispherectomy Foundation was founded in 2008 and is dedicated to providing 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 that lead to surgery and the surgery itself.
As the cause of these medical conditions are unknown, research is needed. We invite you to join us in our research efforts to make the future brighter for individuals and their families whose lives have been touched by these conditions.
