This year has been filled with challenges, especially for the kids and families of our community. Because of CFC donors like you, we have been able to continue providing support and resources so Kosair Kids like Itzel have everything they need to grow up happy, healthy, and safe.
For children like Itzel—Itzzy to her family and friends—your support is life-changing.
Itzzy is a bubbly, outgoing, and bright 6-year-old who loves to paint and play with her Jack Russel terrier, Jackie.
When Itzzy was 3 years old, her mom, Alma began to notice she was struggling with speech and language development. Despite seeing specialists and speech therapists, Alma was worried her daughter would fall behind in kindergarten. Itzzy’s doctor suggested additional testing to help find a diagnosis. Unfortunately, this testing did not accept insurance. That is when Alma and Itzzy found Kosair Charities.
With your help, Itzzy received the testing she needed at no cost to her mom through the Kosair Kids® Financial Assistance Program. After years of searching for answers, Itzzy was diagnosed with hearing loss and an auditory processing disorder. With this diagnosis, Itzzy, Alma, and her medical care team were able to create a care plan designed especially for her.
Thanks to donors like you, Itzzy has hearing aids and an FM transmitter system she uses at school. Her test scores have improved more than 50% and her comprehension has developed significantly! You have helped Itzzy and many other Kosair Kids get the care and resources they need to reach their full potential.
“I know Itzzy is destined to do great things and now she can,” Alma said. CFC donors have changed her daughter’s life for the better.
Kosair Charities is committed to ensuring all kids in Kentucky and Southern Indiana have what they need to thrive, but we need your help to provide these vital resources.
Thank you, CFC donors, for your help as we provide Kosair Kids like Itzzy with the care and resources they need to grow up happy, healthy and safe!
