About Let’s Save the Brain Foundation, Inc.
Let’s Save the Brain Foundation, Inc. was established in 2012 by a group of neuroscientists in response to the plight of indigent patients at the Dept. of Neurosciences, University of the Philippines – Philippine General Hospital (UP-PGH). Many of them would be discharged permanently disabled or even die because they could not afford to pay for expensive procedures or treatments that could save their lives.
Their life-threatening neurological conditions include strokes, aneurysms, brain tumors, hydrocephalus, congenital malformations, central nervous system infections such as encephalitis, etc.. While confinement is free and these patients do not have to pay their doctors, they still have to purchase medications, devices, and the like. For instance, one clip that prevents a brain aneurysm from bursting costs Php 13,500.00 – a prohibitive amount in their circumstances.
Since its inception, the Foundation has assisted over 500 patients with a 96% survival rate! As a result, babies with hydrocephalus have a chance at developing normally; breadwinners with aneurysms can resume working and continue to provide for their families.
No donation is too small. Do you know that just ONE PESO can pay for 3 minutes on a ventilator?
