Kids Helping Kids!
Kids With Courage would like to thank Kayla R for donating bears and many wonderful items for our Crates Full of Courage. Instead of a birthday party, she asked her friends and family to buy supplies for Kids With Courage instead. All of the beautiful items will make so many kids smile while they are in the hospital. We can't thank you enough Kayla for your thoughtfulness!!!
And a big thank you to Jade R. and Aubry Bend Middle School's REbel Club for making hundreds of cards for our Crates Full of Courage. We really appreciate your beautiful cards and we hope you know how many hundreds of kids that will smile because of all of you.
Thanks to your generosity and hard work kids, hundreds of children will receive the support they desperately need. Amazing!
Meet Our Featured Courage Champion Kayla R.
Kayla was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes September 2013, she was 5 years old. This last year has been a struggle at times but she has been a fighter and very brave. Kayla has been involved with gymnastics this year and enjoys it. She is also involved in a local garden club for kids and loves being outside. Her school has been really great working with her and could not ask for a better school. We have been very proud and thankful on how well she is doing and has adjusted to Type 1 diabetes. She deals with this disease every day but never lets it beat her or get her down.
She would like people to know that she is a normal 6 year old and can do everything that everyone else does. She is not afraid to do anything and some things might take some time but she will get it done.
Type 1 has been a positive influence in her life by making her a stronger person each day. She has accepted Type 1 diabetes and is a very brave, strong 6 year old. She is not bashful about her disease and is open about it. If anybody asks her or her parents about Type 1 diabetes she jumps right in and tells them her side of the story.
