Protecting children, families, and communities against influenza.

WHO ARE WE?

Families Fighting Flu is more than just a name – it’s who
we are and what we do.

Founded in 2004, Families Fighting Flu (FFF) is a national, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) advocacy organization dedicated to protecting children, families, and communities against the flu. Our organization includes families whose loved ones have suffered serious medical complications or died from influenza, as well as other advocates and healthcare professionals committed to flu education and prevention.

In honor of our loved ones, we work to increase awareness about the seriousness of the disease and to reduce the number of hospitalizations and deaths caused by the flu each year by increasing vaccination rates for everyone six months and older.

Whether it’s the difficulty of walking past a now-empty bedroom, or the sadness in never getting to celebrate another birthday, losing a loved one has left an incredible emptiness in our lives. This organization is a way for individuals to realize that they are not alone in this fight against the flu and to allow them to channel their grief into helping to save others from this vaccine-preventable disease.
