Your monthly donation is a predictable source of income we can count on to fund our programs and services that give hope to children with medication-resistant seizures.

Our legal name is The Brain Recovery Project and we do business (dba) as the Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery Alliance. Your donor advised fund may be required to donate to our legal name rather than our dba. Either works for us.
