The squad offers children living with this rare disease an opportunity to connect to a community of others just like them, while educating them on their disease through activity boxes mailed to their home throughout the year. To further demonstrate the theme of HPP Together, families are encouraged to learn more about this program and register their child(ren) by clicking the link below:
