When Nathan was born with cerebral palsy, a core group of friends came together to help support his needs. They founded the Friends of Nathan Foundation in 2007 and expanded their reach to include other children with disabilities and debilitating diseases. Since then, these tireless volunteers have provided financial support, home modifications, equipment needs and therapy services to more than 30 families.
In 2018 the foundation partnered with Easterseals, and the group's mission and legacy lives on through the Friends of Nathan Fund at Easterseals DuPage & Fox Valley. This fund ensures that critical therapy services are available to children whose families who could not otherwise afford them.The Friends of Nathan have transformed the lives of dozen sof children and their families over the past 12 years. We celebrate their lasting impact and shared commitment to children with disabilities.
