Being a Dad and Parenting When You Have a Chronic Illness or Disability

Being a dad and parenting with a chronic illness has its set of challenges, but it's not impossible!

Unfortunately, despite the fact that nearly 1 in 2 people in the USA have a chronic condition, and millions of these people have children, there seems to be a lack of information and tips for parenting. We've pulled together a few resources for families dealing with chronic illness and we are eager to find more to share with you. If you have suggestions please let us know.
