When Dustin and Juanita brought Melody home from the hospital, everything seemed normal. But a call from the pediatrician changed their lives forever.
Melody was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis.
When a child gets sick, childhood itself just stops. Suddenly, sometimes without any warning, life as you know it goes away as if a distant memory, faded and fuzzy, like an old movie scene.
Every day, Melody’s parents help her complete 90 minutes of treatment exercises.
This is the very reason A Kid Again was created.
With support from volunteers and donors like you, we provide consistent, cost-free, year-round Adventures for children and families like Melody’s. These Adventures allow them to remember what it was to live carefreely.
We exist for the moments of laughter, the smiles, and memories for the whole family, created in place of pain.
“It’s just good to see her happy. It’s nice to see Melody get to be a normal kid that gets to go an play at a water park for a day.” – Dustin, Melody’s Dad
Time is something that money cannot buy. At A Kid Again we strive to provide robust volunteer opportunities that are fun-filled and kid-centric. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who enjoy adventure and have a heart for serving others.
Your generosity will help thousands of kids living with a life-threatening illness receive the gift of hope, happiness, and healing in the time they need it most. Please donate today and help us fuel the adventure. You can have an impact on kids and families who truly need it.
Through Peer to Peer fundraising, you can invite your family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers to support children who are living with a life-threatening condition. It’s easy. Donate your birthday, run a race, or host a special event to fuel the adventure and give illness a time out.
