This fund was created by a family who have had the experience of trying many therapies for their children and realizing the financial burden it can place on a family. The various therapies over the years were very beneficial towards the success of their children. Their passion is now focused on helping other families who are wanting to provide essential therapies for their children but may not have the financial means to do so. Together, we hope to provide these special, wonderful kids the tools that they need to be successful in life.
