The complexity and severity of chronic diseases and the unpredictable nature of epilepsy in childhood can force families to become isolated and fearful.
The cumulative burden of chronic disease care can be overwhelming for families; because we recognize how important family support is to the management and overall quality of life, Epilepsy Durham Region has established the Pediatric Management Program to assist with extraordinary costs related to treatment.
With no cure on the horizon, our program helps to disentangle and manage treatment options, educates and supports families, provides financial assistance* associated with travel, medication, a customized plan of care and access to specialized summer camp.
With no formalized funding from government nor the United Way, volunteers and staff vigorously advocate for our clients and raises funds to support families in our community. We are committed to raising awareness and understanding of the very real issues at a community grass roots level.
We are successful in our approach because of the generosity of our community. We are confident that together your contribution to the Pediatric Management Program will ensure that families, employers and teachers understand the serious health issues associated with epilepsy.
Your support means that Epilepsy Durham Region can keep its promises that families will receive help. Your help today directly impacts the quality of life for children like...
