Incorporated in November of 2014; the Olivia Kay Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization founded by Chad and Lisa Borodychuk in honor of their daughter Olivia Kay, who was diagnosed with Alexanders Disease. As a 100% volunteer run organization, Olivia Kay Foundation exists to improve the quality of life for children with severe multiple impairments as well as their families and care givers.

Chad and Lisa understand the many challenges, first hand, that children with severe multiple impairments and their families/caregivers come to live with. Pain of medical procedures, emotional pain, physical pain, extra marital pressures, financial burden, exhaustion, lack of resources, and times of feeling hopeless are just a short list of the many challenges that children and caregivers face daily.

Having experienced the struggles of supporting a child with severe multiple impairments and having been completely inspired by Olivia, Chad and Lisa established the Olivia Kay Foundation to improve the quality of life for children with similar health situations and provide support to their care networks as well.

Olivia Kay Foundation can help in many ways including providing information about living with severe multiple impairments, connecting families with appropriate resources for obtaining medical equipment or suitable transportation, providing financial gifts to support practical needs (such as gas cards to get to medical appointments), helping with respite care (to provide care givers with well needed breaks), funding/organizing improvements for wheelchair accessibility, offering support groups, and other practical ways to help families wherever they are at in their journey.  Olivia Kay Foundation is also currently supplying 14 hospitals in Michigan and Pennsylvania with Olivia’s Positioning Pillows to give children comfort and well needed support.

The Olivia Kay Foundation brings HOPE and HELP to children living with severe multiple impairments as well as all types of Leukodystrophy.
