Boston Children’s has been an integral part of my life. I am the oldest of 10 adopted children, and the mother of 2.
My brother, adopted from Korea in 1984 had a tumor removed from his hand, utilizing a new procedure. Casts of his hand are still on display in the hospital.
I have 2 sisters with Cerebral Palsy. My mother tracked them back and forth to Boston Children’s on a regular basis.
I have a brother born in the Philippines with Pierre Robinson syndrome. The nuns who cared for him for the first 5 years of his life prayed that God would take him, because no one else would ever want him.
I have a daughter with cortical dysplasia.
I life and work in a community where children and families are helped every day by this amazing organization.
