In a bedroom on a quiet street in Boston, a child waits. In a crowded village on the outskirts of Kigali, a child waits. For care, for treatment, for hope. Above all, a child waits for the kindness of a stranger.
Someone, like you, who believes that no child should live in pain. No child should struggle to walk, eat, or breathe. No parent should hear “there’s nothing we can do.” With your support, we will save lives.
Your unconditional gift helps us respond to a changing world with one goal: to give all children a healthy future. Every penny goes directly to support Boston Children's lifesaving work for children and families.
Boston Children's is home to the largest research center at a pediatric hospital, treating the sickest children and most complex cases. Our doctors, researchers, nurses and clinicians work tirelessly to find cures. When scientists and caregivers work side-by-side, new discoveries happen daily and more children are saved everywhere.
Boston Children’s has over 228 clinical trials are taking place at any given moment. About one third are behavior studies and the rest are therapeutic, searching for new treatments.
We lead the world in health innovation, such as: 3D models to help doctors practice before surgery, robots that look like teddy bears to collect data, implanted devices that grow with a child, to prevent repeat surgeries, using a child's own genes to create new cures.
