Help Score a Win for a Worthy Cause
TRUST ME EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS
This hospital saved my son's life and this organization is what helped us get through it.
I'm participating in Boston Children's Hospital's Corporate Cup. We stand together in the belief and hope that every child should have the chance to get better. All donations go to Boston Children's Every Child Fund. This fund helps provide the resources necessary to provide high quality and affordable care for patients and families while continuing to lead in medical advances for adults and kids.
I hope you will support me in trying to shape a future where all children can play
My son, Elissandro, was hospitalized with Hirschsprung disease and jaundice. He had to spend his first month in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) completing radiation treatment and ultimately for intestinal surgery. Every day I arrived at 9am and waited for my mom and sister to visit my son at 10pm, we would get home at 12am and repeated it until he was able to come home.
This organization is who provides the ROOMS for PARENTS to stay WITH their child while they're going through treatment or surgery. Unfortunately there were not any available for me due to other parents having children and infants in WORSER conditions than my son or lived MUCH FARTHER away from the hospital... can you imagine driving over 45 minutes everyday to see your newborn on life support?? its unimaginable.
This foundation is what provided myself and MANY PARENTS with meals and snacks throughout the day, including emotional support and hygienic needs. They're the reason I was able to keep breast feeding my son through his 1st month of life. Anything truly counts, nothing helps a baby or child heal more than nurturing.
