Friends of Rick Daniels
Rick Daniels was born and raised in Washington, DC. He is the author of several children’s books and the spokesperson of our organization: Friends of Rick Daniels. Rick believes life always gives you chances to make new friends.
In 1955, at age five, he contracted lead poisoning and it slowed down his ability to learn. All through his life he was bullied because he did not read or write well.
As an adult, he decided his mission is to help young children that suffer from bullying. With his first book “Little Remy” and his anti-bullying campaign, he goes to schools to share his story in hopes to help young children identify and report bullying.
In 2007, Rick was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder called Polycythemia Vera. His condition inspired him to bring awareness about childhood cancer and to show support to the children and their families.
Through our books, events, and programs, we plan to change the lives of children by educating, bringing joy, raising awareness, supporting families, and empowering everyone to stop bullying and help researchers find a cure for childhood cancer
