Courageous Kash Foundation

#CourageousKash

Who Are We? 

We are heart warriors, friends and families of warriors and community members interested in serving, supporting and helping others in the heart warrior community through the Children's Center at Johns Hopkins Hospital, as we battle congenital heart defects together.

What Do We Do?

Below are things that we do to support the heart warrior community.

  • Monthly - We bring family bags to each heart warrior and family in the Pediatric Cardiac ICU (PCICU) at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The family bags are filled with items such as snacks for the family, a book to ready to their warrior, activities to keep the heart warrior and family occupied during their stay, and other comfort items. 

  • Quarterly - We host events to "Pack the Pantry," on the PCICU. Most families do not want to leave their critically ill child and the food options are very limited and expensive. We "Pack the Pantry" to help nourish and sustain our heart warriors and families.

  • We pay for and provide 10-day parking passes to families when inpatient. Parking can be $25 dollars a day. Financially, it is difficult for our families.

  • We take part in the "Hopkins Heart Family Reunion," recently partnering with the Hopkins Music Therapists hosting a "make and take" station for children at this annual event.

  • We provide hotel accommodations for heart warrior families, when other options are not available. 

  • We provide holiday events and fun for our families, trying to give them a sense of normalcy during difficult times.

  • Through donations, we send heart warriors and families to the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals base ball games.
