How your support helps kids

You give lifesaving answers to families with nowhere else to turn. Funds raised through Champions for Children’s go directly to helping families through Boston Children’s Every Child Fund—advancing care, research and crucial services—at the one hospital that’s cured more childhood diseases than any other.


After being misdiagnosed nine times, Laila traveled 5,000 miles to Boston Children's Hospital. Here, doctors diagnosed her with a disease so rare only 100 people in the entire world have it. Today, with expert care, Laila is thriving.


Thank you to our sponsors who help make Champions for Children’s possible.
