Overview


Mission Statement

To Raise Awareness & Resources that Allow Children In Need to Focus on the Joys of Being a Child.

Background Statement

BraveOnes Foundation was born in 2018 by lifelong friends Jeff & Rose Kunze and David & Kendra Rosales, in memory of the Kunze’s son Hendrix, who passed away shortly after his first birthday in August 2017. In order to pass on the love that Hendrix brought while he was here, BraveOnes’ mission is to raise awareness and resources that allow children in need to focus on the joys of being a child. 

Hendrix’s sweet little life was short, but filled with immense joy and love from family, friends, and healthcare practitioners. He frequently visited over 10 specialists, attending multiple appointments each week, and remained a medical mystery until after his passing. Most of Hendrix’s medical care took place at Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and the Neuroscience Unit. Through his experience, the Kunze’s discovered that patients of the Neuroscience Unit often have conditions that last a lifetime, such as epilepsy, autism and cerebral palsy, and typically experience regular hospital visits + ongoing medical attention.

In addition, the CHOC Neuroscience Unit is 1 of only 4, Level 4 Epilepsy Centers in California. In 2018, the Neuroscience Unit completed almost 3000 EEG (brainwave) diagnostic tests, served close to 1200 pediatric patients over 5000+ inpatient days, and cared for children with all neurological disorders. Currently, children requiring EEG testing are confined to their hospital rooms anywhere from 24 hours to several weeks at a time. Due to this, they are unable to leave their rooms for the entirety of the test, which leaves them limited on movement and energetic child-like activities.

Based on Hendrix's experience of 7 EEGs during his short time here, and the growing number of children enduring long term EEGs, BraveOnes Foundation's primary campaign is create childhood joy through helping to fund a NEW CHOC Neuroscience Unit Playroom. The NEW Neuroscience Unit Playroom will not only double the current size and offer play options for all ages, it will also include specific components that are appropriate for neurology patients, such as wireless EEG capabilities (allowing children to leave their room during testing), seizure friendly padded flooring, and much more. As of May 2019, only 9 months after officially launching, BraveOnes Foundation donated a total of $65,000 towards the $300,000+ playroom campaign and continues to fundraise for this goal.

Impact Statement

BraveOnes Foundation’s mission is to create childhood joy for children in need. Our current campaigns benefit the Children’s Hospital of Orange County’s (CHOC) Neuroscience Unit. The CHOC Neuroscience Unit is 1 of only 4, Level 4 Epilepsy Centers in California. In 2018, the Neuroscience Unit completed almost 3000 EEG (brainwave) diagnostic tests, served close to 1200 pediatric patients over 5000+ inpatient days, and cared for children with all neurological disorders. At this time, children requiring EEG testing are confined to their hospital rooms anywhere from 24 hours to several weeks at a time. Can you picture a 4 year old or teenager having to be confined with limited movement for that long?

To help create childhood joy, BraveOnes’ primary campaign is to help fund a New CHOC Neuroscience Unit playroom, which will include mobile EEG backpack devices, EEG monitoring video cameras, specialized flooring for seizure safety, and appropriate play areas for patients of all ages, from toddlers to teens. This customized, fully equipped play space will allow children to take care of their ongoing medical needs and still enjoy being a child at the same time. Our secondary campaign is to provide dinners for CHOC Neuroscience Unit inpatient families by partnering with local restaurants, such as StoneFire Grill and BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse, through BraveOnes Meaningful Meals. These simple yet powerful meals help to relieve some of the daily stress families face when a child is hospitalized. BraveOnes is honored to support both children in need and their families.

CHOC Neuoscience Playroom Project

To help create childhood joy, BraveOnes’ primary campaign is to help fund a New CHOC Neuroscience Unit playroom, which will include mobile EEG backpack devices, EEG monitoring video cameras, specialized flooring for seizure safety, and appropriate play areas for patients of all ages, from toddlers to teens. This customized, fully equipped play space will allow children to take care of their ongoing medical needs and still enjoy being a child at the same time.
Budget  300,000
Category  Health Care, General/Other Inpatient/Hospital Care
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success  With the $300,000 goal, we will be able to purchase 2 wireless EEG units along with seizure safety flooring and toys. Over time, we hope to purchase more wireless EEG units to service more children and let them enjoy the freedom of leaving their room.
Program Long-Term Success  CHOC Neuroscience Unit is 1 of only 4, Level 4 Epilepsy Centers in California. In 2018, the Neuroscience Unit completed almost 3000 EEG (brainwave) diagnostic tests, served close to 1200 pediatric patients over 5000+ inpatient days, and cared for children with all neurological disorders. Currently, children requiring EEG testing are confined to their hospital rooms anywhere from 24 hours to several weeks at a time. Due to this, they are unable to leave their rooms for the entirety of the test, which leaves them limited on movement and energetic child-like activities. Our long-term plan is to have a seizure safety playroom space, with wireless EEG capabilities, for all of the children being monitored for seizure activity in the Neuroscience playroom to be able to enjoy.

CHOC Meaningful Meals

Our secondary campaign is to provide dinners for CHOC Neuroscience Unit inpatient families by partnering with local restaurants, such as StoneFire Grill and BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse, through BraveOnes Meaningful Meals. These simple yet powerful meals help to relieve some of the daily stress families face when a child is hospitalized. BraveOnes is honored to support both children in need and their families.


Budget  $14,000/annual
Category  Health Care, General/Other Patient & Family Enrichment
Population Served Families
Program Short-Term Success  Short term, we are currently feeding approximately 50 people two times per month. We have only been able to provide one live music pairing but it was a huge success. 
Program Long-Term Success  Long term, we would like to be able to provide weekly dinners to approximately 50 patients/parents in the CHOC Neuroscience Unit. In addition, we would like to partner these meals with live music to provide a respite from the stresses of being in the hospital.
