How we help

Because CBR is providing generic support applicable to a wide range of research projects, very substantial results can be achieved with modest sums, when compared to many other areas of research funding. The generosity of individual donors, companies, and community groups makes it possible for us to tackle the needs of children today and lead the way to tomorrow’s cures.

“Our son, Reuben, has a rare condition called West Syndrome which is a form of epilepsy. As Reuben has grown older, it has become more apparent how his epilepsy is, and will in the future, affect him. The condition affects every part of his development, for example his speech is very limited. He can say about half a dozen words since birth. His developmental age is about 18 months. His vision is also badly affected by brain damage (which has caused the epilepsy). Reuben has also been diagnosed with Autism. Many other children are likewise affected by rare neurological conditions, and we would like to try to help to raise awareness of the need to raise funds for this vital research.”
