The Alexandra Lewis Scholarship Fund was started by the generosity of the Lewis family to help families who do not have the resources to travel to the Tri-State Rett Syndrome Center at Montefiore Medical Center. There are only a few centers for families with children with Rett Syndrome to turn to for proper care. The Lewis family recognized that some families may be limited financially or geographically to bring their child to the Tri-State Rett Syndrome Center at Montefiore Medical Center for proper care. They have started an annual fund for patients that meet criteria for paid travel expenses to our Center.
The Alexandra Lewis Scholarship Fund will pay up to $1,000 for a patient with Rett Syndrome to travel to the Tri-State Rett Syndrome Center at Montefiore. This includes airline ticket for patient and 1 family member, or automobile reimbursement if within driving distance, 1 night accommodation, transportation to/from airport and transportation to/from hotel.
Decisions will be made by September 15, 2012. We will begin accommodating one patient per month starting October 2012.
