PEARS – formerly known as Paying it Forward for Purple, stands for Pediatric Epilepsy Awareness Research Support.

We are proud to be a 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission is just as the name implies, to raise awareness, to raise funds for research and to reach out and support families who are dealing with the often times devastating effects of Epilepsy.  Every year, we hold our large scale fundraiser, our Croquet for a Cure tournament, which is not only tons of fun, it helps us fund small projects at MGH Pediatric Epilepsy Clinic as well as donate funds to CURE Epilepsy, the leading research funding organization for Epilepsy.  Additionally, we now have 100 families in our mostly “virtual” online support network as well.  We are also holding our 3rd annual Family Day at Fenway Park which we are thrilled to say is an “Official Pediatric Epilepsy Awareness Day” this year.  With your help, we can expand our funding opportunities to other local hospitals as well as research initiatives for unconventional treatments for Epilepsy.  We are grateful for the help of our friends and family who have supported our dream of making a difference in the lives of children who are suffering every day.  We love you all!  Julie and Stephanie, co-founders of PEARS
