Blue Caboose Children’s Fund (BCCF) was started by Kelly Colbert and her son, Jack, in 2012. Their sole purpose was to help children and families living with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) because they knew firsthand what life with this disease was like.
Although Kelly has decided to hand over the reins, our mission has stayed the same.
Through public education and community awareness, we raise money to assist families with back-to-school needs, we host a toy drive at Christmas to provide CF children and their siblings with gifts, and we provide Caboose Comfort totes with a first admission to Children’s Medical Center in Dallas. We also have an amazing community of parents, family and friends of CF children who support each other, lend an ear, and more at our monthly dinners. As we continue to grow, we hope to assist more CF families with everyday costs-like groceries, travel, and home expenses-that can quickly add up while a loved one is receiving treatment.
While we are currently serving families in our area at the Cystic Fibrosis Care Center at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, Texas and the Florida Suncoast we will be expanding to other hospitals and areas in the future.
Thank you for hopping on board the Blue Caboose.
