This month we are fundraising for Defying Rare. 10% of sales will be donated to this amazing cause!
Children with a rare disease or chronic illness frequently have anxiety when going to routine doctor appointments and even more when they undergo procedures at the hospital. Founder of Defying Rare and rare mom, Michelle Torres, saw firsthand how much comfort a plush animal brought to her daughter, who has suffered from systemic mastocytosis since the age of 3, during trips to the hospital. Defying Rare strives to come alongside and comfort children going through similar experiences. Through their Golden Gifts hospital delivery program, children receive an adorable stuffed plush Golden Retriever, a backpack, and a book that addresses some of the anxiety children may have around upcoming tests or procedures.
