Population(s) Served
Children and youth
People with diseases and illnesses

Starting in 2016, Wishes for Elliott innovated a partnership with the American Epilepsy Society allowing our small family organization to make high impact grants to promising young scientists - solidifying their commitment to this rare disease and uncovering the mysteries of this disorder. Five grants have been made to date with more planned in the near future. We also provide bridging funds to allow critical research to continue between major donations.

Population(s) Served
Infants and toddlers
People with diseases and illnesses

We have gathered pediatric epileptologists and SCN8A caregivers from five continents to work collaboratively, using available data and publications, to develop the first ever consensus guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of SCN8A epilepsy and related disorders. This a monumental effort that stands to improve the quality of care for all those living with the rare, devastating disorder.
