Walk a mile in our families’ footsteps to understand the importance of walking in Fred’s Footsteps.

As 2022 draws to a close, we are asking for your support. We are on course to assist more families this year than ever before in our 17-year history. But we can only meet this growing need with your help.

This year, we invite you to enter the normally private lives of our families to feel what it’s like to live life in the upside down. When a child is critically ill, injured, or lives with a chronic disease, a family’s world shifts off its axis. Daily life is tenuous and stressful as caregivers and siblings go into survival mode. What does it take to stay afloat?

Delve deeper into the experiences of our families to see the hardships they endure through their own lens. The struggle is real – but so is the real-time, real-life relief we provide.

Robbi Marie's Path

Rob and Tonya’s precious baby girl, Robbi Marie, is a blessing and a true miracle. This family made it through 361 days of intensive care in the hospital, but their journey of caring for a medically-complex child in their Pennsauken, NJ, home was just beginning.

Grace's Path

The Wallace Family was settling into life in Delaware County, getting ready to welcome their second child. When their daughter was born prematurely, at just 24 weeks gestation, it led to a crisis they could have never seen coming, let alone financially prepare for.
