Bubbles at the Hospital
Our most vital fund, The Every Child Fund empowers Boston Children’s to respond to a changing world with one goal: until every child is well.
Nurture every child
Sick children face more than medical treatments at a hospital. Important parts of their childhood also slip away. The Every Child Fund brings joy into the hospital with celebrations, puppies, arts and laughter to ease fear and hasten healing. Kindness that insurance doesn’t cover.
32 specially trained therapy dogs
nearly 14,000 children cheered by music therapists
415 Thanksgiving dinners
Support every family
When a family has a sick child, their world can fall apart. Parents may need to leave their jobs, put their lives on hold, and face overwhelming choices. The Every Child Fund supports our family-centered care, so parents can focus on what’s most important—their child. These services, housing, interpreters and social workers are not covered by insurance.
