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NOTE: THIS SITE IS UNDERGOING CHANGES, SO YOU MAY FIND A FEW BROKEN LINKS OR OUTDATED INFORMATION.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

 "My oldest son who is now 6 has had diabetes for 5 years and I felt so alone...then came the KIDZ group. When I went to the first KIDZ event I was overwhelmed with the number of other families there that face the same fears, tears and triumphs we face with type 1 diabetes.  I learned about new technologies from the representivies of different diabetic supply companies that make our lives so much easier.  My three boys  had so much fun participating in all of the fun activites.  The KIDZ group is such a blessing!"  RW
