Become Someone'sHERO

The Hang Tough Foundation serves so many families in our community, and we need your help to continue to grow. Support can be offered in so many ways and we invite you to help our families hang tough during their journey with childhood diagnoses.

Give Today!

The Hang Tough Foundation offers resources and encouragement to families during their journey with childhood illness and special needs.

Our vision is to build a community for families who are on a journey with childhood illness or special needs to provide a refuge and outlet that supports the entire family.  

Do you have a child age 0-21 with a chronic, life-altering illness or special need in Leon, Gadsden, Jefferson, or Wakulla county?
