The Matty Fund aka Matthew Siravo Memorial Fundation, Inc. Reviews
My role in the mattyfund, volunteer, parent of a child with epilepsy, board member and most importantly facilitator of the Discovering My Epilepsy Support Group. I have been a part of the Mattyfund since 2004 and since then I have watched this small foundation evolve into an organization that not only raises money for research; but also provides education programing, academic scholorships, and lectures and workshops for both professional and parents. The Mattyfund continue to find new and creative ways to help support the children and families of RI. As they continue to grow I see there out reach of support spanning accross the United States.

As a board member and a mom of a child with epilepsy, I know first hand the stuggles that families go through dealing with this disease everyday. The Matty Fund has done so many wonderful things for the children and families who have joined our organization. The few fundraisers that the Matty Fund promotes every year fully funds such wonderful family events like Camp Matty, Pumpkin Fest, Easter Egg Hunt , and Support Groups each and every year. The Matty Fund also has a wonderful program that educates the community and schools about epilepsy. Research has been funded by the Matty Fund as well as lectures with world renowned doctors. If you have a child with epilepsy and are looking for a great support system and fun activities for your child, you will want to call the MATTY FUND!
