The UKC is an international charity that has helped thousands of children around the world to overcome the stress, anxiety and health challenges of serious physical and mental health conditions.

Remembering Tom Bales

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our friend, community leader and the UKC Chairman Tom Bales. Tom made a profound and lasting impact on the UKC and in-turn the lives of over 15,000 medically fragile children by serving as Chairman for six years. Tom’s dedication and selflessness in volunteering with his whole heart and soul demonstrates his compassion for others and dedication to his community. Tom’s energy, passion, and kindness were infectious, and many supporters of the UKC continued on as contributors and board members because of him.
