Will King Hughes only lived 96 days here on Earth. In that time he sparked a movement of people who desire to make a difference. The Will King Foundation was created in 2018 in honor of Will. They do this by supporting international children who are receiving heart treatment at Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida. The hope is to create a community of love, care and support around the children and families they serve during their greatest time of need. They believe that even the smallest heart can make a big impact.
