Imagine...hearing the words "you or your child will have to fight each and every day for the rest of their life to stay alive." Well, that's not exactly what the medical team tells you, but it is the truth when Type 1 diabetes is diagnosed. It's an incredibly difficult time, especially when newly diagnosed. That's why Kids With Courage provides Crates Full of Courage/Brave Boxes. Packed with empowerment, essential tools and understanding from those who have been there. 2,302 times. Still going strong.

Thank you for the Full of Courage basket! We can't begin to explain how receiving this information and thoughtful items at this disheartening time brought us comfort. Especially helpful were the Makin...g Healthy Choices and the Calorie King Guide. Our baby loved the bear and hugs him and pats his back. Thank you again for your generosity and thoughtful gift! � See More

Thank you so much for the basket. Sophie was so happy with it, and slept with her new teddy bear last night. I have to admit that I've been heartbroken, but seeing my little girl remain strong and h...appy and brave is helping me to gain some sort of strength to accept this challenge and go forward...

This crate full of courage is such a wonderful blessing. It brought joy to a scary situation. It was full useful tools, toys, and books. Not only did it help us greatly, but it reinforced what we lear...ned at Children's Mercy. It was the help and strength we needed. Thank you and your sponsors. ♡ The Bowen Family See More

We have been taken over by our sweet Alex the bear and hundreds of his siblings! We are gearing up for crate making. Alex the bear is our most loved part of the Crate Full of Courage and the most costly to provide. How about sponsoring one of these happy guys in an upcoming crate to a newly diagnosed child? Follow the link to sponsor a bear for $15 and your name on a certificate will be added to the crate along with Alex. These brave kids need our support!! Thank you!!
