The Neurosurgery Kids Fund (NKF) is made up of various professionals who are dedicated to serving babies, children, and adolescents with neurosurgical conditions who have been treated at the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton, Canada.
Our goals are to enhance the lives of children, support their families and provide world-class neurosurgical care.
Our mission is to help our pediatric neurosurgical patients and their families navigate their medical journey with as much support, information, and resources that we can provide.
All funds raised by the NKF go directly to programs and initiatives that improve the quality of life of those affected by pediatric neurosurgery.
