Who We Are

Keeping Dreams Alive!

The Kids With Courage Foundation has made a commitment to little boys and girls growing up with Type 1 diabetes. Why? Because they require strength beyond what most of us can comprehend because they will battle this dreadful disease each and every day for the rest of their lives. They need and deserve our understanding, assistance and encouragement.
