Indiana Chapter

The Indiana Chapter is honored to serve families who are raising children living with life-threatening illnesses. We do so by providing cost-free, fun-filled destination events throughout the year that we call Adventures.  We could not provide a timeout from the challenge of lifelong illness if not for the support of the local community and fundraisers. Thank you to all our valued partners!
