I was recently introduced to The MATTY FUND by a friend who sits on the board, and who's daughter is afflicted by epilepsy. It is a Foundation that provides resources, education, and assistance to families touched by epilepsy and I am pleased to be associated with this tremendous cause.
The Matty Fund is always looking for new ways to reach a larger audience to educate more people about epilepsy.
I've had the opportunity to work with the Matty Fund for the past several years, interacting with the office staff, founders, volunteers and families who benefit from their services and resources. The warmth and personal attention given to families is truly inspiring to see. From a humble beginning, The Matty Fund has grown into a robust resource for epilepsy support throughout the community!
Advocacy for any patient is important, however the Siravo's have taken advocacy to another level. Matty was and is their love as well as the rest of their children. However, not every parent(s) devote their life to help fill the void that others feel given the same situation. They have gone a long way in helping children and parents dealing with the many forms of epilepsy. Their work is truly heartfelt and meaningful.
