We're fundraising on behalf of Boston Children's Hospital because:
Jake is Thriving due to the hard work of everyone at Boston Children's Hospital.
We have been taking Jake to Children's since he was 3months old, and they have helped us through a variety of concerns. At one point we were seeing 5 specialists across 6 departments, now we regularly see 3 specialists.
In February/March Jake began to decline in weight and his team worked to come up with a new longterm plan even during the COVID19 concerns. We had 2 inpatient stays where the nurses and support staff worked hard to help keep Jake entertained even without having access to the playrooms and volunteer staff.
From being in the 24th percentile in April, after having a NG tube placed followed by surgery and a G-Tube placement we have watched Jake move back to the 50th percentile. In easier to understand terms - at 1year old Jake was wearing size 9months clothing (even some items size 6-9months) , now at 14months old he is wearing 12-18months in clothing (typical sizes for his age).
Without Boston Children's Hospital our Family wouldn't be where we are today - Home ! Jake wouldn't be Thriving and able to enjoy life as a typical toddler.
Please consider a donation to support our fundraising efforts... because WE KNOW that when we band together, WE WILL help fund Boston Children's exceptional care and groundbreaking research that can help every child.
