CURE - Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy It's Time We Found a CURE CURE Epilepsy Research

In 1998, three Chicago-area mothers of children with uncontrollable seizures fantasized about creating an organization to fund innovative epilepsy research and raise awareness about the disease. They were desperate to make a difference.

They quickly found out that realizing their dream was not so easy and required, from the very start, legal expertise.

At that time, Sidley Austin, LLP (www.Sidley.com), and one of their attorneys, Lynn D. Fleisher, Esq., offered to provide their legal services at no charge in order to help CURE incorporate and attain its nonprofit status. In this true spirit of giving, Ms. Fleisher brought legal and scientific expertise (she also has a PhD in genetics) and the compassion of a mother whose child did not have epilepsy, but who could understand the struggles of those who did.

Since then, Ms. Fleisher and her colleagues have continued to provide CURE’s legal services at no charge. In addition, Sidley Austin is a Silver Sponsor of CURE’s Annual Benefit in Chicago.

Thank you to everyone at Sidley Austin for sharing CURE’s vision of a cure for epilepsy and for their help in ensuring that as much as possible of every dollar donated to CURE may go directly to research.
