Many people underestimate the seriousness of influenza or have questions about flu vaccination. Sadly, every year in the U.S., upwards of 56,000 people – including 100 children – die from the flu and associated complications, leaving their families and communities shocked and devastated.

Our organization works to educate others about the dangers of influenza and the critical importance of annual flu vaccination for everyone six months and older.

Your tax-deductible donations allow us to continue our education and advocacy programs in an effort to save lives.


Can help us reach out and support family members affected by the flu. 


Can help us raise awareness through the sharing of our family stories and key messages on various communication channels. 


Can help us provide educational materials to local flu clinics, schools, and hospitals.


Our organization consists of families who have lost a loved one to flu or had a family member suffer serious medical complications as a result of flu, as well as healthcare professionals and other advocates committed to flu education and prevention. Anyone is welcome to join our organization!



That all families understand the seriousness of influenza and the importance of annual vaccination, and as a result everyone six months of age and older get vaccinated every year so that no one dies or suffers serious medical complications from this vaccine-preventable disease.
