Thanks for expert care
"When our son was initially diagnosed with an easily fixed heart condition, we had no idea that he would end up requiring days and months of expert care from nurses and doctors with a wide range of specialties. We were wonderfully surprised and are eternally grateful that talented people had built a hospital to take care of a sick 3-month old, who is now an energetic two-year old. We want to be sure the place remains strong for the next kid and the next parents."

Saved at 4 days old
"They saved my daughters life at 4 days old! I can only pray that they are there for other families to who need help. Thank you to the great cardiac staff."

To Help Other Families
"Our family supports Children's because we want to help other families going through childhood cancer treatment. We feel fortunate that Children's oversees our son's care because it recognizes that our son is in treatment, but that our entire family needs support to fight alongside him. Our son's care team is always available to answer every question and address our concerns. We hope that by supporting Children's that other families like ours are able to receive the same high quality of care. "
To Make a Difference
"We support Children's because Children's made our lives a little easier at a time when our world was upside down. Children’s provided, Christmas celebrations, birthday parties and innovative therapy with the therapy dogs which all helped to bring a smile to our daughters face at a time when we did not see many smiles. We give and volunteer to make a difference in the lives of others at Children’s."
We Love Children's!
"We give to Children's to help them provide the extra comfort and care babies, parents, and families all need in the NICU. It's a time when life that can be confusing, frustrating, and at times unbearable. We want to help make it as easy and comfortable as possible for patient families."
