Ten Year Old Thriving Thanks to a Unique Collaboration

After adopting eight-year-old Julian from China in 2016, his mom Jeanie learned of significant medical issues she was unaware of beforehand. Despite being profoundly deaf and managing several other diagnoses daily, Julian is thriving thanks in part to support from Kosair Charities and Hwang’s Martial Arts.

“Kosair Charities has supported us as a family and allowed Julian to become his most healthy self,” said Julian’s mother, Jeanie. “The support has given my family financial stability, therefore giving me the ability to place Julian in outside activities.”

Julian started at Hwang’s Martial Arts (HMA) two years ago. According to his mom, the positive impact HMA had for Julian has been immeasurable. He has learned discipline, self-control, and become more outgoing and confident.

HMA recently selected Kosair Charities as their charity of choice to fundraise for this winter. Through their sponsorship of the Louisville Kids Fairand many additional fundraising activities through each HMA locations, they have nearly reached their fundraising goal. All proceeds will benefit Kosair Kids® like Julian in our community and state.

“I cannot thank Kosair Charities and Hwang’s Martial Arts enough for the kindness and generous support for my son,” Jeanie says, “both organizations are beyond amazing!”
