Jared Hiner started Kammy's Kause 9 years ago to help raise money for Wolf Hirschhorn Awareness-- the syndrome that affects my daughter, Kaylee, as well as hundreds of other children across the globe. Flipscript created a custom design to say thanks to Jared for all of his hard work on behalf of our children!
