What People Are Saying
I have memories as far back as 2nd grade with kyle. I was always jealous of how tall he was and the advantage it gave him in most sports.  I never got closer to him than saying hi in the halls of school but none the less when we saw each other we always said hello.
The last time I had the pleasure of seeing your son was summer of '02, I believe in Carson City Nevada. We were at the same baseball tournament nearly 1,500 miles away from home, the last place I had expected to see someone running over towards me calling out my name.

Brandon C.


Brandon was undergoing treatment for a brain tumor that materially affected his vision. Losing his independence and ability to drive was one more challenge to deal with as he battled the disease. The Kyle Charvat Foundation provided funding for Brandon to attend an occupational therapy evaluation and training for adaptive driving equipment that prolonged his ability to drive.

The social worker that helped connect Brandon with the Foundation provided the nice note below:

"The generous support of the Kyle Charvat Foundation allowed one of our young adult patients to be tested for adaptive driving accommodations in the hopes that he would be able to regain some of his independence, in a time when he was experiencing great loss in all areas of his life. The impact of this support was especially meaningful given the loss of function he had sustained from the tumor, the loss of identity he sustained from the having to suspend school,  social activities and his previous life goals.  It provided him hope and the promise of a renewed quality of life."
