Our "Mission"

Our mission is to bring joy into the lives of chronically ill children by providing them with activities they can do despite their illness, as well as providing for their basic needs.

These children face daily doctor’s appointments, hundreds of missed school days, endless pain, frequent hospital visits, reoccurring surgeries, and missed childhood opportunities. We want to bring them chronic joy, as they face chronic pain. We are one of the only nonprofits that helps chronically ill children, ages 3-18, on an ongoing basis. Our mission is joy. Will you join us?

Help us grant ‘Joys’ to chronically ill kids & teens.

All proceeds go directly to helping kids and teens with chronic illness.

​Please consider donating today! Every dollar counts!

Meet the founder

“As we lose ourselves in the service of others we discover our own lives and our own happiness.”

~Dieter F. Uchtdorf

I am Neeley, the founder of Neeley’s Chronic Joy Foundation, and I am a 17 year old who suffers from a chronic illness called Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). I love traveling, crafting, eating potatoes, and spending time with my friends and family. I am currently seeking a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Brigham Young University-Idaho. I hope to use the skills gained to continue growing Neeley’s Chronic Joy Foundation for years to come! After being diagnosed over three years ago, I started to feel a loss of myself as well as a loss of purpose and joy…
