We began by uniting our small community with the common goal of helping our children succeed and develop. Today we are joining forces with other communities with rare diseases and undiagnosed diseases. In addition, we support children with special needs. Our mission is to:
Families of rare diseases or undiagnosed diseases do not get the same attention or funding as diseases with higher incidences, but we deserve the same support because together we are a much larger community.
The number 8 has spiritual and cultural significance around the world. It resembles the symbol of infinity and deals with the recycling travel path of energy. The number 8 resonates with self-confidence, inner-strength, inner wisdom, society, and at the same time has to love for humanity and a desire for peace.
We used this number to limit our values and to concentrate our focus. Nonprofits and charities are familiar with the idea of wearing multiple hats and extending themselves in all areas that they are needed. However, it is essential we have a core foundation of values as well.
