Why We Do What We Do
More than an app, Family Proud is a community of people united by the belief that -- no matter how great the challenge someone may be facing -- the support of friends and family makes a positive difference.
Patient support can take many forms, including:
- Social/emotional Support,
- Financial Support,
- Education and Informational Resources,
- Holistic Health Services, and
- Help with day-to-day needs: cooking, cleaning, rides, childcare.
Our rallying cry - stronger together - is born of our belief that no one should have to face adversity alone.
We strive to bring peace of mind to patients and families, by empowering them with the resources, support, and information critical to their care.
