Welcome to our team fundraising page for Boston Children's Hospital! We are walking on behalf of the excellent care our daughter, Ava, received during her first few days of life. Ava had an apneic event when she was only two days old, resulting in her intubation and being taken to Boston Children's Hospital for testing to determine the cause of her sleep apnea and to prevent it from happening again. Ava spent 8 long days in the NICU receiving test after test to ensure she was no longer in danger before coming home. She had a sleep study, EEG, catscan, EKG, countless labs, and x-rays. We are so thankful that she passed all tests with flying colors and was safe to come home to be reunited with her twin brother, Graham. Ava has not had a single health concern since then! She is a smart, curious, sweet, loveable, and spunky (almost) one year old girl! We are beyond grateful for the care she received from the nurses who cuddled her when we could not be there, the temporary housing they gave Chris so he could be near Ava when she was in the NICU, the meal vouchers, parking vouchers, personal care kits, the doctors for her medical care, and the hospitality of all of the staff members there. We would appreciate any donation large or small to support the hospital that helped our Ava and gave us piece of mind that she would be okay. We hope that no family ever has to endure any life-threatening event, but if they do, we know that the staff at Boston Children's will be there to do anything they can to help.
