Lucky Fin Project

Welcome to the 
Lucky Fin Project! Click on our logo below to learn more about who we are. 

 Documentary coming early 2017.

     We’re Partnering With The Mighty!


We’re thrilled to announce a new partnership that will bring Lucky Fin Project's community and resources in front of The Mightys wide-reaching readership. LFP will also now have a growing home page on The Mighty where people can get involved.
The Mighty is a story-based health community focused on improving the lives of people facing disease, disorder and disability. The Mighty publishes real stories about real people facing real challenges. Creating broad mainstream awareness of our community is one of the most powerful ways to effect change. We believe that partnering with The Mighty and interacting regularly with their wide readership will enable us to spread the word about our families and the limb different community — and in turn help even more people.
Here's an example of the kind of stories on The Mighty: "8 Things I Want Parents of Children with Limb Differences To Know"
The Mighty wants to hear from you. We encourage you to submit a story to The Mighty and make your voice heard.

Lucky Fin Song

by Tony Memmel

As a touring musician, my work as an LFP ambassador has taken me all over the country and I've had the privilege to meet a great many families. It has been a keystone of my mission to emphasize A-bility over Dis-ability, and to show children (as well as adults) that all things are possible if you set your mind to them and don't give up.
I am very excited to serve the LFP by providing them with a theme song! 

Thank you for listening, 

Tony Memmel
