Factorials... This Reminds Me of Something..

Calculus Level 5

\[\large \sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \frac{1}{(n+1)! \left(\frac{1}{2} - n\right)!} \]

The infinite sum above can be expressed as \(\displaystyle k\frac{a\sqrt{a}-b}{c}\pi^m\), where \(a\), \(b\), \(c\), and \(k\) are positive integers, \( k \) and \( c\) are coprime. Find \(\displaystyle k+a+b+c+m -4.\)

Note: Factorials of real numbers that are not non-negative integers, is well defined using the Gamma function. We have \( x! = \Gamma(x+1) \).
