We have joined Eversource Walk for Boston Children's Hospital because we want to help the hospital continue its amazing work for kids! Callen was born with a congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. After complications from the first of three open heart surgeries, Callen was listed as a status 1A on the heart transplant list. He received his gift of life 28 days later at just 12 weeks old. Callen is now 2 years old and thriving. He is walking, babbling and is reaching milestones on his terms.
Boston Children's Hospital is our home away from home and participating in the walk is our small way of giving back to an organization that has done so much for Callen. The doctors, nurses and support staff are amazing.
Boston Children's Hospital is ranked #1 in more specialties than any other pediatric hospital by U.S. News & World Report. Here are a few reasons why:
- The hospital's patient care programs provide the best, most innovative care possible.
- 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.
