Better2gether RVA began when close friends had ill children at the same time. Both children began receiving excellent medical care at the same hospital system. One child had a medically complex condition in which non-medical support does not exist. The other was diagnosed with cancer. While their illnesses were very different there were many parallels in the journey. They recognized many discrepancies in the non-medical support available to their families.
Better2gether RVA grew from the desire of both mothers to provide a support system to the families of children with medically complex illnesses in the Richmond community.
Families of children with complex medical illnesses feel equipped for the road ahead.
The mission of Better2gether RVA is to provide comfort, support, and guidance to families of children with medically complex illnesses, whose needs are not addressed by existing organizations.
