About SEHRF

Our Mission

The Shay Emma Hammer Research Foundation (SEHRF) is committed to improving the quality of life of children suffering from epilepsy and other brain disorders by supporting scientific research to improve our understanding of the fundamental processes that regulate brain function and to discover new treatments.

What We Do

The Shay Emma Hammer Research Foundation (SEHRF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to improving the quality of life of those suffering from epilepsy and other childhood brain disorders through promoting hope and finding better treatment therapies. A large part of the work SEHRF does is advocating and spreading awareness about childhood and SCN8A- related epilepsy. Sharing Shay’s story of the SCN8A discovery and educating the community about epilepsy helps our friends and neighbors to better understand why we do what we do.
