Choosing Children’s: Sydney Mueller

“For a three-year period, clinics and hospitals became a routine place for my family and me.  My brother was diagnosed with brain cancer when he was just three years old, I was eight at the time.  Throughout these seemingly endless visits, the most vivid memories I have are of Children’s hospital.  I remember not being as upset about going into the big building, because there was always something exciting waiting on the inside.  At Children’s it wasn’t just doctors and needles, it was activity books and dollhouses.  Along with these luxuries came the most invaluable prize of all, my brother’s health.  My family and I are so very grateful for the wonderful treatment and attention the whole family was given.  When Children’s healed my brother, they healed my family.
