THE STORY:

Thanks to my wonderfully generous friends, family and supporter I have well exceeded my fundraising goal!!!  We are just about 6 weeks away from take off and I am so excited to embark on this trip with the Liddle Kidz Foundation, helping the children of the Philippines.  

I am forever greatful for this experience and would not be able to do it without you! 

You can follow along our jounrney  on Kai's blog (as time and wifi allow) www.LifeofKai.me  

 

 

Thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page to support the Liddle Kidz Foundation 2016 outreach trip to the Philippines!  It is an honor to have been chosen (from over 3000 applicants) as one of 30 participants for this outreach project!

For those of you who don't know me I have worked with children and adults with different health care needs for many years, exploring the benefits and impact of nurturing touch on whole family wellness. This work became a life long passion when my son, Kai, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor at 8 months old. Kai received massage therapy, acupuncture, and nutritional support to help ease the symptoms of his chemotherapy treatment, helping to improve his overall quality of life.  These supportive therapies were paramount in his health care and the wellbeing of our family as a whole. 

In November 2012 Kai lost his life to disease progression and I knew I would spend the rest of my life working to help other children and families like ours, in his honor. Two months later I began my massage training.  

I now work exclusively in pediatric palliative care, both as a massage therapist and advocate. Every day I see the benefits of providing and teaching nurturing touch to families of children with serious illness and I am looking forward to bringing this passion overseas to serve the children and families in the Philippines.

I believe so much in this work that we do and I hope you do too.  

If you would like a closer look into what this project is all about please take a look at the video attached to this page which documents the 2010 Global Outreach trip to Vietnam with the Liddle Kidz Foundation.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about our cause and please share my page with others you know who support strengthening child and family wellness across underserved populations. 

Thank you! Salamat! 

xo Kerri  {Kai's mom}

p.s. I have set my fundraising goal to $5000 in honor of Kai's 5th birthday Septmeber 5, 2015. The extra money I raise will go towards my airfare and helping the overal team attain our goals.  Thanks agian for your support.
