Meet Emmett

Emmett Ks Childrens Foundation

Less than 2 hours after being born, Emmett was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. Within one year he began battling chronic pneumonia and swallowing issues – leading to monthly hospital stays to treat his lungs. Emmett loves music, and in his hospital room there would always be music! The Kansas Children’s Foundation provides music therapy (and other programs) to children like Emmett – giving them emotional support and comfort during hospital stays.

There are few things harder than seeing your child suffer, especially at a hospital. I was greatly comforted knowing that Emmett had music therapy to get him through blood draws, suctioning, x-rays, and surgery. He would instantly calm when the music began, and for that I am deeply thankful.

Kind Words from Real Parents Just Like You

The support we received from our friends, family, community and organizations like the Kansas Children’s Foundation really helped us through this trying time. The financial support alone was very helpful for us, but the events the Foundation funds are wonderful for helping Reese and our family through this. She loved the art therapy and music therapy programs. All of the support has helped her blossom into a social, fun-loving little girl despite facing cancer. The support was truly a light for us during a very dark time.
