KCC Saves Lives by Never Giving Up
Saving Lives by Never Giving Up
My name is Kyle Thaller and I am 17 years old. I had dreams of attending the U.S. Naval Academy and joining the U.S. Navy as a Navy SEAL. On April 27, 2015 I was diagnosed with Type-1 diabetes and my world changed in an instant. As if things could not get worse, I was rescued as my family's house burned down five months later. I cried for a long time because I thought that my dreams were destroyed. But, then I figured out that I could still be a leader and make a difference. So, I formed Kyle's Campaigns for Change (KCC) to continue my dreams of being a leader and making a difference.
KCC has a goal of Saving Lives by Never Giving Up . . . just as people like me who face challenges have to keep on trying and never give up.
Millions of lives have been lost over the past 50 years due to civil war in South Sudan. The country is currently at peace with a transitional government established in 2018. KCC and xxxxx are currently supporting senior leadership in South Sudan in the development of a new Constitution based upon Federalism.
In Sudan and South Sudan kids die without ever being diagnosed because symptoms of malaria and TB cover up the T1D. There are very limited medical supplies and poverty is severe. KCC currently supports Diabetes Clinics in Malakia and Gurei, South Sudan. Previous support was provided to Gulu, Uganda. To date, several million dollars of diabetic supplies have been provided with countless lives saved and helped.
1. Glucose meters, test strips, and lancets are the key! Please send whatever you can.
2. Of course, any financial support you can provide is fantastic, too!
