Michael is an incredibly smart, kind, funny 3 year old who is a Children's kid! Michael has hypogammaglobulinemia, an immune disorder where the body does not have the necessary antibodies to help fight infections. He comes to Children's every three weeks to receive infusions of IVIG at the CAT/CR center, which allows Michael to stay healthy and be your typical toddler. The CAT/CR nurses and clinical assitants have become our second family, and this walk is the least that we can do to help support the world's best pediatric hospital.
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.
