2022 brought more health issues for Jake! Last year alone he had 60 appointments, 4 hospitalizations, and 3 surgeries. Once again Boston Children's Hospital was there to help us get Jake back on track to being a healthier kid!
The BCH staff not only help to care for kids like Jake, but also support families to help them get through the difficult times they are facing. This is not limited to just during an appointment or a hospitalization, but also the continued care at home to support recovery leading to a more healthy outcome!
Jake is still non-verbal, but we are hopeful one day he will be able to talk or communicate effectively with an AAC device. When he does I am certain he will say thank you to all that have and continue to help him! But for now, those that know Jake, know the smile on his face tells the story and are his words without speaking! He also always reminds me we cannot leave the hospital without getting pizza from the Fresh Food Court in Boston! :)

I'm participating in the Eversource Walk for Boston Children’s Hospital on June 11.
Every dollar I raise funds breakthrough research, family support services and vital services not covered by insurance. Your gift will:
*Give children battling the most complex diseases treatments they can't find anywhere else
*Help children in your town and those across the world get a second chance
*Fuel 3,000+ researchers working to find cures
*Help patient-families in crisis with urgent needs, including housing, food and clothing
*Bring crucial care to families through not one, but four, outpatient psychiatry clinics
*And so much more
Please support my fundraising and the children and families at Boston Children's and beyond.
Boston Children's Hospital is the number one pediatric hospital in the nation, now nine years in a row according to the U.S. News and World Report! It is an honor to not only have Jake be a part of the hospital's success story, but to also be part of the BCH team!
