Hayden's Hope for FOP Research

"Hayden's Hope was inspired by its namesake, Hayden Pheif, an adorable young boy who is now an amazing teen with FOP.  Hayden's Hope was started by Hayden's mother and father, who led fundraising efforts in Northern California with the help of many relatives and friends.  Year after year, Hayden's Hope provided significant revenue, which isn ow close to one million dollars in total donations.  These donations propelled the IFOPA mission forward.  All their efforts have helped bring FOP awareness to the forefront and these funds have significantly advanced FOP research.  Today, Hayden's Hope continues its efforts on-line with website and blog, while still raising awareness and funds for research and other IFOPA programs.
