Every day at Children’s Health, our patients battle against cancer, heart disease, trauma and more. Our patients are the real heroes, brave and courageous in their fight. And they earn these traits by being strong, spreading joy and caring for others.
Sometimes our heroes become helpers by selflessly giving back to Children’s Health. During this season of giving, we’re celebrating them.
These children had their lives saved at Children’s Health – then they helped others by giving back.
We'll share one story each week through Dec. 28 to give you the chance to meet our heroes. Together we can help all the superhero patients by being ones ourselves.
