I am walking in memory of Charlie Buck. Charlie received a liver transplant at Boston Children's Hospital in 2007 at the age of three weeks. Their care allowed this vibrant soulful boy to touch all of our lives for next 8 years. I feel lucky to have been on the receiving end of a sly smile or two and gazes from under those gorgeous lush eyelashes. In honor of Charlie and his sweet family, consider joining Team Charlie as we walk in an effort to raise money with the Pediatric Transplant Center.
Why we walk:
- 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.
And the hospital doesn't just stop there. Boston Children's really understands the importance of training the next generation of top pediatricians and nurses, so they can continue to provide the best, most innovative care possible to kids.
Please consider giving today.
