The week of the 2020 Boston Marathon will mark 5 years since Luc was diagnosed with Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, an ultra-rare blood disorder. Thanks to a quick diagnosis and access to ongoing treatment, he is doing great and living the life of a normal teenager. He just turned 14 and is active and thriving. We have so much for which to be grateful, including access to treatment at Boston Children's Hospital.
We are back for our third year fundraising for Miles for Miracles! Patients are partnered with athletes who train for and run the Boston Marathon in April. It is a wonderful program leading up to a really spectacular race day. We believe very strongly in the amazing things Boston Children's Hospital does for kids, including:
-The hospital's patient care programs are unusually sensitive to what sick and injured children and their families really need.
-Researchers regularly make amazing discoveries that change children's lives.
-Boston Children's welcomes kids whose families can't afford health care--more than any other hospital in Massachusetts.
-Community programs makes a point of reaching out to help low-income and at-risk kids.
And the hospital doesn't just stop there. Boston Children's really understands the importance of training the next generation of top pediatricians and nurses, so they can continue to provide the best, most innovative care possible to kids.
Support Luc, and support the hospital! Please make a gift today.
