My daughter has seizures from a condition called cortical displacia. She is a candidate for a new treatment the neuropace. We have insurance however it will only cover a certain percentage of the surgery and the testing prior to and after the surgery. I was wondering if there are any other resources that may be available to help us with the cost of this.

Thanks for your time,
