I look forward to this Walk every year. I love gathering families, providers and friends together to raise money for our Boston Children's DS Program!
I have been working at the DS Program for 17 years since Isaiah was 4 years old.
I am forever grateful that Boston Children's is in our backyard and my son could access the best medical care a parent could ask for. He has numerous specialists from dental to pulmonary to general surgery to GI to audiology and so on. We first arrived to Children's over the connecting bridge from BWH when he was just under 5 lbs and a sick premature baby in need of a colostomy.
Childen's became our 2nd home from that day forward. We have amazing specialists but also developed priceless relationships with the nurses, the child life specialists, the cafeteria staff, the folks in Center for Families, the kind lady behind the booth in the parking garage. It's a community that has embraced and supported us through these past 21 years. We are so grateful to everyone who has played a role in our story and time at Boston Children's.
We walk to raise funds for the DS Program so we can best support other families as they come in for their child's care. Please help in any way you can so I can ensure the new little ones get the best care we can offer. Someone did it for me and I am grateful to be in the position to pay it forward.
