What We Do

We are accomplishing our mission of helping kids with rare diseases and chronic illnesses to feel less alone by sending care packages, providing emotional support through social media and get-togethers (held virtually during COVID-19), and financially assisting these kids and their families by providing the money needed for meals, gas, groceries, and medical equipment. We are always looking for new ways to spread our message and help as many kids as possible!

Why We Do It

At Fighting H.A.R.D., we are building a support system for kids and families who battle rare diseases and chronic illnesses. We know the struggle first-hand, and we want to create a positive, safe, and supportive environment for the rare disease community. Raising awareness in the community is absolutely crucial to our mission, and the fundraisers and events we host are all geared toward that goal of letting these kids know they are not alone! THis truly is our passion here at Fighting H.A.R.D., and we couldn't do it without our community. Thank YOU for Fighting H.A.R.D. with us!
