Every child deserves to grow up healthy. When you support Boston Children’s Every Child Fund, you answer an urgent call to end the diseases of childhood and help families heal.
Patient Family Services
When a child is very sick, the whole family suffers. Parents make tough sacrifices; siblings may be separated; everyone feels helpless and scared. The families in our care need emotional support, distraction from the long days of hospitalization and healing services that let kids reconnect with their creative, inquisitive selves. Many families struggle with expenses that insurance doesn’t cover, such as food and rent or a place to stay while their child receives treatment. Your gift to the Every Child Fund provides all of this and more. Child Life Services, patient family housing, extraordinary needs funding— your generosity grows our capacity to meet the needs of more families so they can focus on what’s important, their child.
Easy to overlook but vital to the future of health care, medical training is a major part of Boston Children’s mission. We train more pediatric residents than any institution in the country, and our trainees go on to lead in communities around the world. Through global observerships, a sophisticated simulation program and our online training platform, OPEN-Pediatrics, we share our medical expertise with clinicians everywhere. Your gift to the Every Child Fund plays an important role in educating the next generation of scientists and caregivers.
Boston Children’s is where the world comes for answers and this is unchanged during COVID-19. Children and families still need us – now more than ever. No matter what happens in the world, the needs of our patients never stop. Your gift is more important than ever during these challenging times and we are incredibly appreciative of your support. From all of us at Boston Children’s, thank you.
