Kyle’s Care benefits the families of critically ill children at Cook Children’s in Fort Worth, Texas. The Kyle Bradley Staples Memorial Fund at Cook Children’s is used to allow families of critically ill children to eat in the cafeteria for free.
This fund is named in loving memory of Kyle, who was born in April 2009 with a congenital heart defect. He survived two open heart surgeries but due to compounding complications, at 11 weeks old, Kyle died in the arms of his loving parents and went to heaven.
During Kyle's stay in the PICU at Cook Children's, Kyle’s parents stayed by his side day and night. As his parents stood watch over their son, it became evident they did not need additional worries. Cook Children’s has a wonderful cafeteria to serve both staff and families, but eating there on a daily basis can become expensive quickly causing a mounting financial burden for families. Kyle’s Care makes it possible for families of children in the PICU to eat in the cafeteria for free while their child receives treatment.
Our fund raising goal for 2013 is $50,000.00! This will allow us to give an endowment gift to Cook Children's which will help keep the Kyle Bradley Staples Memorial Fund fully funded in the future. Your ticket purchase will help us reach this goal and continue to care for families at Cook Children's.
