Kids of Courage
The organization was founded by author and professor of medicine Dr. Stuart Ditchek, paramedic Howard Kafka and Arthur Adlerstein. Its mission is to enable children with serious medical conditions to travel, experience adventure and provide them with a social environment in which they can meet other children with similar medical backgrounds. Diagnoses include Familial Dysautonomia, Muscular Dystrophy and Childhood Cancer.
