A BIT ABOUT US

FTR was first founded as a student organization at The College of William & Mary by a group of five ambitious college students in 2019. Here we recognize that healthcare is not a privilege. It is a human right. Our mission is to supply relief from medical debt to ensure that patients have the opportunity to focus on the one thing that truly matters: their health and recovery.


By formulating partnerships with various organizations, hosting fundraisers, and raising awareness on the healthcare epidemic, our team continues to make progress on providing people with the care they deserve.
