THE STORY:

Our agency is raising funds to provide a wheelchair ramp to make life easier for one special kid. The Kelly’s Kids Foundation works to increase awareness and support to families that have loved ones suffering from fatal illnesses and diseases.

 Imagine being restricted to a wheelchair as a child and not having the ability to run and play freely. Even more, imagine having to deal with places that are not wheelchair. There are many kids and families that have to face this inconvenience daily, even within their own home. With the help of the Kelly’s Kids, the organization is going to provide wheelchair ramps to families who cannot afford to have one installed in their home. The organization is in memory of Kelly Hubbard, a mother of seven who developed a rash all over her body with no diagnosis. The illness progressed and Kelly eventually was kicked off of her insurance and eventually lost her job and home. With over 40 emergency room and doctor visits that followed with additional illnesses caused by medical practitioners, Kelly did not make it and passed in March of 2015. “Many low-income families struggle to help their loved ones receive the right medical equipment they need to live a better life so we want to help them in any way possible.” 

The organization continues Kelly’s legacy as she was an active mother and community leader who believed in the importance of family. Through our efforts, we hope to help improve a special child’s quality of life by making their home a place where they can freely get around and perform daily activities with ease. Join us on our mission to help Kelly’s Kids!
