Raising money for the International Autoimmune Encephalitis Society helps our fight against Autoimmune Encephalitis and provides immediate support to patients, caregivers and families.

  • With your help patients, families and caregivers will receive support, advocacy and education from the time of their diagnosis through to entering recovery and rehabilitation. Whether the need is to:

  • support breakthrough research

  • Find an experienced doctor

  • Connect doctors so they can confer on patient’s treatment plans

  • Connect patients with discounted travel and accommodation for medical care

  • Overturning treatment denials, over billing or securing affordable insurance
