Who Is Carter Foundation

About Us

MISSION: The Who Is Carter Foundation changes the conversation around childhood brain injury—whether among physicians, families, communities, or society as a whole—from one of limitations to one of empowerment and possibility. We are dedicated to inspiring people and improving lives around the world, showing that there is beauty and hope in every circumstance.

WHO ARE WE? The Who Is Carter Foundation started out as a family who sought possibilities beyond limitations 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 diagnosis.​

WHAT DO WE DO? The Who Is Carter Foundation provides families with the access they need to information, cutting-edge research, and complementary treatment options for children with atypical neurological conditions. 

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, and a searchable Practitioner Registry so families can find treatment options in their area, and support with insurance navigation. 
  • At future stages in its development, The Brain Possible will feature interactive forums for families to support one another.
  • 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.

WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF THE WHO IS CARTER FOUNDATION?  We plan to establish a retreat center for the families we serve. This retreat will be a place of learning, a place of hope, a place of possibility, a place of love, and a place to find community.
