Our Story

Our story began in 2014 when our daughter Rosemary was diagnosed with a rare form of epilepsy at four months old and we watched as medications failed to control her seizures. Working with our doctors we soon met Laura Dority, a registered dietitian, who introduced us to the ketogenic diet as a treatment option.  We started Rosemary on the diet and were amazed when her seizures were completely controlled within weeks. She has remained seizure free and is now back on a traditional diet. 

The success we experienced on the ketogenic diet inspired us to team up with Laura and form the Keto Hope Foundation. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to families with children on the ketogenic diet as a treatment option for pediatric epilepsy. We are committed to advancing the success of the ketogenic diet by supporting families, expanding nutritional options, and providing educational opportunities to healthcare professionals.

Our Mission: Advancing the ketogenic diet for the treatment of pediatric epilepsy one family at a time.
