Flying Horse Farms serves children, teens, and young adults who live with cancer, facial differences, arthritis, rare diseases, and disorders of the heart, lungs, blood, kidneys, and gastrointestinal system. Many campers face co-occurring post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, and other mental health illnesses as a result of their diagnoses. A serious illness impacts an entire family and Flying Horse Farms also serves campers’ siblings, parents, and caregivers.
