Who are you and why did you start Sickids?
Hi! My name is Dan Friend. I started Sickids because after ten years of living with chronic illness I wanted to express this very important part of my identity. My mission is for people who have chronic illnesses to feel less alone and realize that there are people just like them who feel the same way. And if I can accomplish this goal with empathy, creativity and humor- then even better!
Where is Sickids based?
Sickids is proudly based on the Upper East Side in NYC, the coolest neighborhood in the city 😉.
