KCC Saves Lives by Never Giving Up
Saving Lives by Never Giving Up
My name is Kyle Thaller and I am 19 years old. I had dreams of attending the U.S. Naval Academy and joining the U.S. Navy as a Navy SEAL. On April 27, 2015 I was diagnosed with Type-1 diabetes and my world changed in an instant. As if things could not get worse, I was rescued as my family's house burned down five months later. I cried for a long time because I thought that my dreams were destroyed. But, then I figured out that I could still be a leader and make a difference. So, I formed Kyle's Campaigns for Change (KCC) to continue my dreams of being a leader and making a difference.
KCC has a goal of Saving Lives by Never Giving Up . . . just as people like me who face challenges have to keep on trying and never give up.
PLEASE NOTE: I am involved with three other projects in South Sudan, and so some links (such as donation processing) within the KCC website use portions of these other websites.

Millions of lives in South Sudan have been lost over the past 50 years due to several civil wars. The country is currently at peace with a transitional government established in 2018. KCC and the former U.S. Senate Pages from Spring-2020 recently supported senior leadership in South Sudan (S.S.) promoting federalism and developing a path to a new constitution. The 120-page Final Report was presented to the S.S. First VP and the Minister of Federal Affairs in August-2020. Several hundred VIP's from across the world joined the zoom call. See the complete report and presentation in the "Downloads and Research" tab.
In Sudan and South Sudan kids die without ever being diagnosed because symptoms of malaria and TB cover up the T1D. There are very limited medical supplies and poverty is severe. KCC currently supports Diabetes Clinics in Malakia and Gurei, South Sudan. Previous support was provided to Gulu, Uganda. To date, several million dollars of diabetic supplies have been provided with countless lives saved and helped.
