Geared toward high schools and colleges, this yearlong, student-led fundraiser culminates in a day of dancing. Fundraising helps kids at your local Children's Miracle Network Hospital—Boston Children's (that's us!).
I'm looking forward to helping Boston Children's Hospital make strides in the treatment of congenital heart defects through the Heart Fund.
47 years ago, my son Neal was born with Tetralogy of Fallot (teh-TRAL-uh-jee of fuh-LOW), a rare condition caused by a combination of four heart defects that are present at birth (congenital). At that time, my son was one of early patients of a new trial procedure, and while he wasn't fortunate to survive his surgery, his experience led to advancements in the field. Today, with early diagnosis followed by appropriate surgical treatment, most children and adults who have tetralogy of Fallot live normal lives.
As I celebrate my 70th birthday, I can think of no better gift than to honor the legacy of my son and the amazing work at Boston Children's Hospital.
