When I look at my son (Luke), I see a challenge. I see that he has a physical challenge and a social challenge (inclusion). That is his life challenge, and I always think: what can I do to help? One day I realized, kids and families, like mine, need help now with many things., such as; specific dietary approach for the kids, mobility, therapies, stress management, mental health (depression), caregivers own physical health, etc. This where the Go Luke Wygand Foundation comes in."by Richard Wygand

We were fortunate enough to work with the Luke Wygand Foundation for my son.
He has a rare form of epilepsy and had been on a ketogenic diet for almost 2 years. We needed to access a dietitian who works as a consultant for the Charlie Foundation. Our sons dietary needs are very strict and we weren’t getting the help from the hospital dietitians.
Because of Luke Wygand Foundation we were able to get connected with this new dietitian and work with her for a year.
Not having the support we needed was very stressful and thanks to Richard and his family we are able to help our son.
You are amazing people. Thank you for having such big hearts for others!
