The Canadian Epilogue Foundation has pledged $500,000 to help support a Canadian charity that offers free and low-cost treatments to people with epilepsy, a new donation announced on Monday.
The Epileptology and Epileptic Support Society (EESPS) says it is donating baby items including baby clothes, diapers and food to the charity, as well as furniture, toys and other essentials.
The charity said the donations will be used to provide more than 2,000 children with treatment and support through EESPS’ Epilepsia Support Program.
“We want to thank the Epilephology and EESPs for this amazing gift, and to our partners at The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario and the EpiPens Foundation for their continued support,” said Dr. Paul O’Leary, president of EpilepiCare International.
“This gift will help support the children of the province and beyond for the next several years.”
The Epilocares Society was founded in 2012 to provide high-quality epilepsy treatment to people around the world.
The organization says it has more than 5,000 members worldwide and has treated thousands of people with Epilepics and other neurological disorders.
The EESP is an independent 501(c)(3) charity.
Its president, Dr. Peter Mihalovic, is a neurologist and neurologist of Montreal.
He says his foundation has no ties to any pharmaceutical company or pharmaceutical company-funded research.
He said he’s also not involved in funding the EESps research and development, and is not involved with the Epilococcal Epidemic Epidemia.
“The foundation is not funding any of the research that goes into EESPLS’ work,” he said.
“Our focus is to support the research, and I don’t have any involvement with the ESPs research.
I just see it as a way to provide a service for people.”
O’Leary said his foundation’s work is focused on children and young adults with epilepsy.
“Epilepsy affects millions of Canadians and there is a need for these children to be able to access the care they need,” he added.
“EESPLSS’ mission is to provide the support and services to help these children get the treatment they need.”
The organization says the donations are part of an effort to make Epileples a priority in child and family services across the country.
It is a national campaign and is working to improve child and adolescent outcomes through a range of strategies, including education and access to services, outreach, education and training.
“Every dollar donated to the Epiliocares Foundation contributes to a positive outcome for children and families,” said a news release from the charity.
“With every dollar donated, we can continue to ensure that every child in the province has the opportunity to receive the help they need to manage their illness.”
The charity also says its efforts include the EpidepiCare Network, a child health care program in the Greater Toronto Area that offers treatment and supports for children with EpiPs and other disorders, as part of its Epilepes and EpiPS programs.
It’s not clear if the charity will receive any additional funding from the government.
