As we wrap up our rare disease interview series with Kayla & Andrea Abramowitz of Kayla Cares 4 Kids.
Kayla Abramowitz is the Founder and CKO (Chief Kid Officer) of Kayla Cares 4 Kids, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
She began the organization, at age 11, by collecting entertainment and educational items to donate to children’s hospitals in an effort to help children feel better. The now 16-year-old came up with the idea after extended hospital stays of her own, in addition to her 12-year-old brother Ethan’s numerous hospital trips, due to chronic illness. Kayla has Crohn’s Disease, Juvenile Arthritis and Eosinophilic Colitis. Ethan has Juvenile Arthritis and Eosinophilic Esophagitis.
Listen in as Kayla & Andrea share their family’s journey with rare disease, the mission of Kayla Cares 4 Kids & how you can get involved.
