WHO aRE WE

The Who Is Carter Foundation started out as a family who sought possibilities for one child, Carter Abbott. Now, we are a community of families, caretakers, complementary medicine practitioners, and supporters who want to make possibilities available for all children facing a pediatric neurological condition.

HOW DO WE PROVIDE THAT ACCESS? 

Through the development of TheBrainPossible.com.

  • The Brain Possible currently houses articles on 29 pediatric neurological conditions and 28 complementary treatments for those conditions. 

  • In the near future, The Brain Possible will feature interactive forums for families to support one another, a searchable Practitioner Registry so families can find treatment options in their area, support with insurance navigation, and a podcast of interviews and stories to supplement the informative, inspirational content of the website. 

  • We aim to make The Brain Possible the go-to resource for parents seeking the best treatment options for children with atypical neurological conditions.  We also aim to make The Brain Possible a thought leader in addressing the complexities of pediatric neurological disorders.
