Meet Our Little Heroes

Heroes Stories

Our powerful little martial artists have enormous impact and have found purpose by teaching the world.

Teaching the World

Pain is more than physical ailments. Brain imaging tells us that one’s sense of fear, despair and anger affect the physiology of that pain. Allowing our little heroes to know that they are teaching the world, lessens their pain of disease and procedures. It also creates a motivating force for healing.

We are honored to share the stories of our courageous patients, supporting siblings and amazing caregivers.
