We believe that sickness has no boundaries, and compassion has no limits.

The KIS Foundation, Inc. is dedicated to improving the social health and quality of life for patients and families living with Sickle Cell Disease. We are firm believers that individuals and groups should not simply wait for SCD to affect them personally for them to get involved and make a difference. It is this proactive outlook combined with a community service-based infrastructure that has made KIS Foundation a successful non-profit throughout the years.
