Does your family have a child diagnosed with diabetes? KIDZ can help!

 

NOTE: THIS SITE IS UNDERGOING CHANGES, SO YOU MAY FIND A FEW BROKEN LINKS OR OUTDATED INFORMATION.

PLEASE BE PATIENT AS WE COMPLETE THE UPDATES.

KIDZ is a family support group that provides opportunities for individual and group support, recreation, advocacy, and education to families who have a child diagnosed with diabetes.   We serve families in the tri-cities area of Nebraska, as well as parts of Nebraska and North-Central Kansas not served by a support group.

When your child is diagnosed with diabetes, there can be a lot to learn. Sometimes it can be overwhelming. How can we keep blood glucose levels consistent? How do we test for ketones? Has anyone else experienced this? Are certain foods limited? What is the latest technology?

Sometimes it just helps to talk with someone who understands.

KIDZ provides:
• Support
• Fun family events
• Lending library
• Information
• Education

 

Testimonial

 "When we attend a KIDZ event, I always leave having learned so much and feeling that my husband and I are not alone in raising a child with diabetes.  My daughter enjoys all the new freebies she gets from the vendors.  One time I looked over, and saw her  sitting side-by-side another girl with diabetes, both of them looking through their new BG meter kits, so excited!  This is one of the few times she gets to be with other kids with diabetes.  At home, she's the only child at her school who has diabetes."  --MK
