When exploring the impact of supporting a child’s tomorrow, we went straight to the source: our patients. We asked several to share how Children’s has played a role in their life today, and what they look forward to in their tomorrow. This is what we learned.
Hometown: Elk River
When she was 5 years old, Julia was taken to Children’s after her mom discovered she was turning blue and feeling extra-tired. He lungs collapsed, and doctors discovered that Julia has a rare asthma, triggered by viruses.
When Julia grows up, she wants to be a veterinarian so she can take care of cute animals.
She likes practically everything about Children’s, so she’s raising $1,000 annually for the next five years to help other kids.
