Our Mission: The Matty Fund ® will provide family resources, raise epilepsy awareness, promote patient safety and improve the quality of life for children and families living with epilepsy. The Matthew Siravo Memorial Foundation is a non-profit organization in memory of Matthew Siravo who passed away from epilepsy May 11, 2003. It is dedicated to providing aid for Epilepsy research and education, Epilepsy awareness through educational programs and annual scholarships to high school seniors diagnosed with Epilepsy. Epilepsy affects 3 million Americans and is the third most common neurological disorder. Nearly 200,000 new cases occur each year. One in every 100 Americans will experience a seizure at some point in their lives, while 3% will develop Epilepsy. “Source: Epilepsy Foundation of America” Through public donations and organized fundraising events, the Matthew Siravo Memorial Foundation will be “Helping Others With Epilepsy.”
