Welcome to Kisses from Katie, a 501(c)3, non-profit organization dedicated to honoring the life of Katie Manning by providing resources to critically ill children, their families, and the people who are dedicated to caring for them.
Since our inception in 2009, the organization has grown to service 5 hospitals in the Northeast with 8 different programs. By educating parents, easing the burden on children, and improving the delivery of services by nurses, we believe that we are improving the health and welfare of all involved. We realize that we cannot directly change or remove the harsh medical realities of children in pediatric ICU's, but we also know that we CAN make a significant difference by "taking the edge off."
