Danielle’s Foundation is a comprehensive support and resource center for parents, caregivers, and loved ones of children with cerebral palsy and brain injury.
Danielle’s Foundation was created to honor the memory of Danielle Vick, who sadly passed away in 2008 from complications of anoxic brain injury. Please read more about Danielle’s Story here.
While Danielle’s life was short, it was also incredibly inspirational. When Danielle’s mother, Florence, was exposed to the world of special needs children—a world in which therapies and benefits are too often just out of reach, too expensive, or turned down by insurance companies—she realized the importance of becoming an advocate for her child. Though Danielle’s injury caused her to become completely dependent upon others, the fight in her remained strong. And as long as Danielle continued to fight, so too would Florence. When Danielle passed away Florence was determined that her knowledge be put to good use, and she vowed to dedicate her time to help other families who were facing similar challenges and struggles.
Though Danielle is no longer with us, we take comfort in knowing that her legacy will live on forever. The volunteers at Danielle’s foundation—parents, advocates, and attorneys—are committed to helping other special needs families get the services, benefits, and care their children so desperately need. Having a special needs child goes hand-in-hand with challenges—challenges that can often seem insurmountable.
Our goal is to help you navigate those challenges, as well as to provide help, guidance, and most of all, support. Consider us your partner in advocacy. Contact us today to learn how we can help you .
