Kody Churma wanted to create a foundation that helped raise awareness and funds to be donated to research for the chronic illness Scleroderma.  Scleroderma, or systemic sclerosis, is a chronic tissue disease generally classified as one of the autoimmune rheumatic diseases. He wanted to help others by educating them of this condition and help those who may be diagnosed with this illness in the future. 

Kody fought for this illness for two years and handled every obstacle with ease and grace. He never complained even until the end.

Kody lost his battle on September 4, 2018 at 2:14pm. His battle may be over but his war will continue thru his family and friends.

We will carry on Kodys last wishes of starting a foundation in his honor, and this is just the beginning.
