Kristie’s Foundation is dedicated to the mission of providing support, assistance and cherished moments to critically ill children and their families. Our focus is on end-of-life care for children and support for the family that loves them.
Kristie’s Foundation was founded in 2003 by Laurie Kotas. Laurie’s inspiration is her daughter Kristie who passed away from Leukemia at the young age of seven. It was Kristie’s love of life and devastating end-of-life experience that inspires Laurie to reach out to other families going through one of the most difficult human experiences, the loss of a child.
With passion and dedication, Laurie has dedicated her life to ensure that families receive all the support and assistance they need and that children live life to the fullest, receive adequate end-of-life care and find comfort in their final days.
