The Mighty

The Mighty

Description

The Mighty is a community supported media organization, dedicated to creating a safe platform for that community to tell their stories, connect with others and raise support for the causes they believe in.


Mission

Billions of people are facing serious health conditions — including many of us at The Mighty. It’s so easy to feel like we are facing these challenges alone. The truth is, we are all facing disability, disease and mental illness together.

But when we look online for help, all we often find is medical information. We want a community, too. That’s what The Mighty is building.

We publish real stories by real people facing real challenges. We are building a brand and a community around them. Having a disability or disease doesn’t have to be isolating. That’s why The Mighty exists.
