Meet our 2022 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.

There were doctors who performed life-saving surgeries. And most importantly, there were donors like you.

    Zoey's Story:

    Zoey was 18 months old when she was rushed to Children’s Health after a near-drowning accident. On a feeding tube and barely moving, doctors told her mother, Rebekah, that she’d likely be in a semi-vegetative state for the rest of her life. But as Rebekah leaned over the crib to tell her baby that she loved her, Zoey smiled. And that smile filled Rebekah with hope.
