Our Purpose

The Liv-A-Little Foundation was incorporated in 2013 by the Little family of Port Elgin, Ontario, Canada. Our main focus is to find a cure for Cystinosis after our oldest daughter, Olivia Little, was diagnosed at 18 months with this debilitating disease.

Olivia Little Cystinosis Rare Disease

Prior to officially becoming the Liv-A-Little Foundation, the support from family, friends and local community was overwhelming. A  charity golf tournament hosted by the Saugeen Shores Winterhawks to raise awareness and funds to support the cause was the main catalyst.


Since then the Foundation has partnered by with the Cystinosis Research Foundation based in Irvine, California, which is the world's leading foundation dedicated to funding cystinosis research.
