We’re committed to present
you only stories that are fun
and full of health tips.

Any disease can be a difficult thing to cope, even as an adult. Children might find it harder because—sometimes—they don’t fully understand what’s going on inside them.

That’s why HSFK is here, providing easy to understand and fun to read content to explain the not so simple health stuff to the children who want to know and the adults who need to teach.

Read what people say about HSFK!

Finalist project on the New Venture Seed Capital Funding through USC and featured project in the USC Stevens Innovator Student Content

Mr. Dad Seal of Approval for the 2015 Winter Holidays, recognizing HSFK as a product that facilitates father-child relationships by getting dads and kids engaged and having fun together.
