Area schools support Kruz’n for a Kure Foundation with a hat day fundraiser

The nonprofit Kruz’n for a Kure Foundation is hoping to raise money through local schools’ participation in KFK Hat Day. On Tuesday, February 5, students and teachers will be able to donate $1 to wear a hat during school.

It’s all to support a special person named Kruz who will be having a medical procedure on Tuesday. Kruz is receiving stem cell donations from his mother to prepare for a kidney transplant.

Kyle and Jessica Davenport began sharing their children’s medical journey after their son Kruz and daughter Paizlee were both diagnosed with Schimke Immuno-osseous Dysplasia, a rare form of dwarfism. It can cause kidney failure, a risk of stroke, and heart disease.

“Every day’s a battle but we’re fighting for them,” Jessica told Jerry Hayes in 2016
