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.

Our Chief Executive Officer is a graduate of the Naval Academy, UCSD MBA, and Naval Aviator for over 12 years. Under his leadership, he helped hospitalized Navy Sailors expand their support networks while away from their families. The vision for Family Proud was strengthened after his own mother suffered a heart attack, and he faced the struggle of providing long-distance care.
