Who is Brandi Nichole?

Brandi Nichole, the daughter of our founder Karen Cowan, lost her life-long battle with juvenile diabetes before her 27th birthday. Before she left our world, she touched an entire community of people.

Brandi grew up in a home where parenting foster children was a regular part of life. As she grew up, she naturally became a mentor to many and an outstanding mother to her son, Joseph. 

Brandi was a strong, vibrant woman of faith, and an advocate for children and families. She faced many struggles and obstacles like many of us do, yet always persevered. 

We use Brandi’s strength to honor our lives and the families we serve.
