Who are the people
of Sarah's Place?
We are a community of laypeople whose lives
have been touched by GPS or another poorly understood neurological
condition. We are either some of the luckier ones, who have
found the “other way round” and achieved great
success in our fields, or people with friends or family
members who are still struggling to find their way.
Many foundations that support research
and treatment of people with a particular condition caused
by some malfunction or “different function”
of part of the human anatomy were founded by people with
that condition and their friends and relatives. But what
makes Sarah’s Place different is that we are determined
to lead, not follow, the medical establishment. By that
we mean, we are determined to insist that artificial medical
categories give way to practical solutions and that narrowly
focused academic research that does little to further understanding
or help people yields to research that brings light and
hope. We are determined to prod and push providers into
listening and learning from those they treat. We are dedicated
to supporting those who dare to innovate.
