2021 HADDS Awareness Month LARGE Banner.

What is HADDS Awareness Month?

HADDS Awareness Month was created by the Foundation in 2019 to rally our community around a central focus -- raising HADDS Awareness and celebrating each other!


Being part of a rare community is an opportunity to be ambassadors and teachers within local communities, educating others about HADDS.

How can you get involved?

There are plenty of ways to get involved, and the calendar of events showcases major events occurring throughout the month. Some folks participate in all events, while others pick and choose what fits with their schedule!
