Our mission is to support families and individuals experiencing unforeseen medical and financial hardships
Our founders, Adam and Jessica Hadwin, were married in 2017 and currently split time between Arizona and Kansas with their daughter Maddox and their dog Brad. Their own experiences facing difficult diagnoses both personally and in their families, as well as their desire to help others going through difficult challenges, led to the birth of the Hadwin Family Foundation.
Through the foundation, they hope to assist individuals and families as they navigate their own trials as well as provide support and partner with other nonprofits with like minded missions.
