The mission of Cool Cars for Kids, Inc. (CCfK) is to increase awareness of the issues faced by children with developmental disorders and birth defects.

Did you know?

• Developmental disorders are the leading cause of infant mortality and childhood disability.

• 7% percent of children born in the U.S. have a cognitive disability and/or structural birth defect.

• Over 400 babies are born each day in the U.S. with a congenital anomaly.

The vast majority of these disorders have a primary genetic etiology. The rapid explosion of genetic information coupled with technological advances has allowed for clinicians and scientists to identify the underlying etiology of these conditions. This information can be used to better understand these diagnoses and translated into improved management and therapeutics.

Who We Support:

There are many groups which embody the mission of CCfK focusing on delivering care and support to children and families who struggle with the medical complexities associated with rare diagnoses. An example of this is the Center for Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS) and Related Diagnoses at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the National CdLS Foundation.

The Center at CHOP is not only a leader in research advancements related to this field but also provides multidisciplinary care to children and adults with complex developmental diagnoses. The Center at CHOP operating in close collaboration with the CdLS Foundation both share a common goal: to help people affected by CdLS and developmental diagnoses live longer, healthier, and happier lives. The Center does that through medical care and research and the Foundation through emotional support and education.

By working together these groups strive to give children hope; that they may be able to learn, play, and enjoy the happy and healthy life they deserve!
