I've joined the Miles for Miracles team again this year because I believe so strongly in all the amazing things Boston Children's Hospital does for kids:
- The hospital's patient care programs are unusually sensitive to what sick and injured children and their families really need.
- Researchers regularly make amazing discoveries that change children's lives.
- Boston Children's welcomes kids whose families can't afford health care--more than any other hospital in Massachusetts.
- Community programs makes a point of reaching out to help low-income and at-risk kids.
Boston Children's Hospital has also helped my family as well. When my daughter was 2 years old her pediatrician discovered that she had a heart murmur. Further investigation revealed that a valve in her heart had not fully developed after birth. In order for her to have a healthy life she would need to have surgery which would repair the valve to function properly. The team at BCH were the absoulte best. The doctors and nurses took excellent care of her during the surgery and with follow up care. Because of their great work she grew up to be incredibly active, and hit all major milestones in growth and development on schedule which exceded all expectations. I am forever grateful for the care the team at BCH provided to my daughter, and am incredibly proud and honored to run on their team in New York City.
