Meet our 2023 Children’s Health℠ Patient Ambassadors! This league of superhero patients are advocates for Children’s Health through sharing their stories of resilience and hope at events and campaigns. They educate others about their journeys, and they also have the opportunity to fundraise for an area of Children’s Health that is meaningful to them. Together, they help make life better for kids just like them.
