In its inaugural year, Holiday Heroes is UHCCF's Holiday giving campaign. We've partnered with LabCorp who is generously providing a custom UHCCF cork- coffee mug when you donate $25 or more between December 8th - December 18th, 2020.
Nothing slows Max down from having a great time. Not even his bilateral vocal cord paralysis, speech delay, and sensory processing issues. With a UHCCF medical grant, his family made sure of it by getting him the important medical equipment and therapies that have helped get the most out of life — and definitely have more fun.
Always full of life, 11-year-old Kenny never lets his Down syndrome get in the way of fun and games. Thanks to UHCCF medical grants, Kenny is able to receive the occupational therapy he needs to communicate better and keep his bright personality shining.
Sweet Jahnila was born with development delay, hypertonia, and cerebral palsy. Fortunately, she was also born with a fun-loving, determined spirit. With a UHCCF medical grant, her family was able to afford the occupational and physical therapy she needed to improve her gross motor skills as well as a wheelchair. Now, she’s able to play like every child should.
The Martin brothers, Emmanuel, Damian and Louis, share a big love for each other. They also share neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease — a rare disorder that inflames and damages the nervous system, skin and joints. UHCCF medical grants were there to help cover the ongoing treatments they require so they can keep being kids and never miss an adventure together.
Nadia is a spunky five-year-old from Elba, AL. While living with right hemiplegia cerebral palsy, a UHCCF medical grant helps Nadia receive regular Botox® injections that allow her to walk, run, and stay her cheerful self.
Being awarded a UHCCF medical grant was music to Evelyn’s ears. Literally. Born with moderate to severe hearing loss, Evelyn needed hearing aids to hear the sounds around her and communicate better with her family. A UHCCF medical grant was there to cover the costs not covered by her family’s medical insurance.
Everyone loves their independence, especially kids. Diagnosed with diabetes, Lucas needed a continuous glucose monitor to provide safety and security it offers to control his blood sugar. Thanks to a UHCCF medical grant, his family was able to provide one — and Lucas is able to live a happy, healthy lifestyle.
