Your support makes all the difference for families like the Tates.

Meet Joshua and Crystal, parents of three wonderful kids. Life took an unexpected turn for them when two of their children were diagnosed with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI), also known as Brittle Bone Disease. Children with OI have bones that can break easily, causing them pain and making everyday activities a challenge. When they learned about their third child’s diagnosis, they knew they needed more support.

Thanks to funds raised from our past auctions, we were able to welcome the Tate family into our Year of Sunshine program. Families like theirs receive personalized care from a Spreading Sunshine Care Coordinator, monthly mailings, and emotional and spiritual support.

This year, we’re on a mission to raise $24,000 to help more families like the Tates. Your contribution will mean the world to us, helping us provide essential support to those who need it most. Together, we can make a difference!
