Hylie's Revolution

This site is dedicated to the memory of Hylie Atkins, the little girl who could. The cards were stacked against Hylie from the start: Anemia, Emphysema, and chronic financial suffering. Yet Hylie survived because the people around her cared so much that we swayed the rich and powerful to take pity. And together, we thought we found a cure.

This is Hylie's Revolution: the power of a community with a common cause. Imagine if every cause were treated with the care and passion that saved Hylie's life. In such a world, anything would be possible.

Millions of children worldwide are denied medical care because they cannot pay for costly treatments and life-saving drugs. Should innocent children like our Hylie be forced to die because they cannot pay? We say no.
