Caoilinn is a long term patient of Boston Children's Hospital. Last year she had major surgery at Boston Children's to remove a choledochal cyst.
The supports put in place at the hospital are amazing! We were able to take advantage of patient family housing within walking distance of the hospital as well as resources and supports inside the hospital, not only for Caoilinn but for us as well.
The staff of Boston Children's Hospital went above and beyond to make sure that we felt supported as her parents, that we felt knowledgeable about her condition and the care she was provided and would need going forward once we walked out the doors. Caoilinn's Surgeons, Doctors and Nurses made sure that all our questions were answered and that all of our concerns were addressed. Staff at the hospital made sure that Caoilinn was provided with toys, music and activities to keep her occupied and stimulated, as well as outdoor spaces to spend time as a family outside of the four walls of her hospital room.
From the doctors, to the nurses, to the patient care associates, to the child therapists, and all of the support staff...everyone was so caring and accommodating and for that we are so thankful!
Many families of Boston Children's Hospital give back to the hospital and to the current patients and their families. We had the benefit of meeting a family while we awaited Caoilinn's surgery. Their daughter has been a long term patient of Boston Children's since she was a small child. They came to the patient family housing and made dinner for all the families staying there. Their daughter also took the time to make Caoilinn a blanket while we were all eating and chit chatting.
As a family of Boston Children's hospital, we want to help out where we can, and this virtual walk and fundraising event is how we can take part at this time.
We're fundraising on behalf of Boston Children's Hospital because:
WE BELIEVE no parent should experience the loss of a child.
WE BELIEVE no sibling should have to watch their brother or sister suffer.
WE BELIEVE that by investing in the best doctors and scientists we can save lives - today!
WE BELIEVE that donations received before today helped a child we love and
WE BELIEVE that every dollar we raise for Boston Children's Hospital will have a ripple effect and could be THE dollar that changes everything for a future family in crisis.
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.
