Care and Cure

Care and Cure

The Care & Cure Institute was established to fund medical fellowships for pediatric epileptologists with the sole purpose of mitigating and eliminating the catastrophic effects of epilepsy. Since 2006, we have partnered with many of the major medical centers in the Greater Los Angeles area, raising over $30 million dollars that have funded the medical training of 45 Care & Cure fellows… and counting.

Mission Statement:
The Care & Cure Institute improves the lives of children living with epilepsy by financing the medical training of pediatric epileptologists.

Our Goal:
To ensure children living with epilepsy have timely access to the highest level of care by increasing the number of doctors throughout the United States.

How We Do What We Do:
We partner with qualified medical institutions to establish endowments that fund medical fellowships for pediatric epileptologists in perpetuity.

How We Got Here:
When our founders’ children were born and experienced catastrophic seizures, we learned of the critical shortage of pediatric epileptologists in the field of medicine.

Our “Moon Shot”:
To expand the mission throughout the United States by seeding a $30+ million master endowment to partner with qualified medical centers and to fund pediatric epileptologists in targeted areas where help is needed most.

 

Celebrating 15 Years of Care and Cure
The Institute held it’s 15th annual gala, Care & Cure – A Benefit to End Epilepsy, on October 14, 2021 at Paramount Pictures Studio in Hollywood. Guests united for the purposes of funding a genetics fellow at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, honoring Jim N. Gianopulos, Chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures, and celebrating the accomplishments of funding 45 pediatric epileptologist fellows in the past 15 years.

In the event’s featured video, we first take a look back on the travesty that was Los Angeles —  among one of the most advanced cities of the world, had a critical shortage of specialists to care for children with seizures and epilepsy — and end with the positive impact of Care and Cure.
