in recent years been having seizures around every 4 to 6 month

Resolved Question:

I have a 21yr. old son who has in recent years been having seizures around every 4 to 6 month . His siezures are very violent I have been told by a clinic that it is possible his next seizure could be his last. I dont feel it is right that I could lose my son because we dont have money for his medical testing and care. Please any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

DearCustomer

I have some suggestions which I hope will be helpful. There's a federally funded program called Hill-Burton which provides free care for people who qualify. There are 200 mandated health facilities nationwide. I checked on the website and there are 5 mandated facilities in North Carolina. Here is the link to the Hill-Burton website with a list of facilities and a toll free phone number:

http://www.hrsa.gov/hillburton/compliance-recovery.htm

Also, I found a list of clinical trials for epilepsy in North Carolina. If your son qualifies he would receive medical evaluation and treatment. Here is a link to that information:

http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?recr=open&cond=%22Epilepsy%22&state1=NA%3AUS%3ANC

Also, I have a link to the epilepsy association website where you may be able to find other useful resources and options. Here is that link:

I hope this guidance is helpful. Very best wishes to you both, JanelleRPAC
