•The Cook Family Charitable Fund:

The Cook family started The Jordyn Cook Epilepsy Fund in 2006. The decision to raise money for Epilepsy came from a deep desire to have resources available so that the community could learn in minutes what took the Cook’s six years. Jordyn’s inspiring Epileptologist, neurologist, Elizabeth Thiele of Mass General Hospital was already beginning an educational website in partnership with WGBH, “Growing up with Epilepsy”. She just hadn’t found a partner to fund the site. It was the Jordyn Cook Epilepsy Fund’s first pledge; $350,000 which was to be the sole funding source of the site. The Growing up with Epilepsy site went live in 2006.

Having recognized other needs, The Jordyn Cook Epilepsy Fund became The Cook Family Charitable Fund on January 1, 2016. Focusing on families dealing with Cancer, Alcohol and Drug Addiction, as well as people dealing with Intellectual Disabilities.
