In July of 2009, there will be a Hemispherectomy Conference and Family Reunion for families of children who have had a hemispherectomy. In addition, Neurologists, Neurosurgeons, councelors, and other medical professionals will be there for the families and kids. There will be seminars, workshops, and activities for the kids. The Hall Family, of course, will be there to award the Jessie Hall Hemispherectomy Scholarship.
Jessie will be 1 year post-op by the time the next Conference and Reunion happens. In addition, we were honored that they added a page for the Jessie Hall Hemispherectomy Scholarship. If you get a chance, take a look at this website.
Hopefully, as more support and awareness is built for these kids, this organization will grow and support will grow for the families, doctors, and especially the kids that are affected by hemispherectomy surgery.
If anyone has any ideas on how to raise money for the Scholarship Fund for these kids, please send Kristi and email at Kristi@Hallzoo.com.
