Our devotion to Children's Hospital started 14 years ago when our precious son, Anthony, came into this world needing a little extra help. We should have been heading home with our newborn, but instead he was being transported from Manchester to Children's Hospital Boston; we had no idea what we were about to face. At just one week old, Anthony had open heart surgery and a repair to his trachea. For the next two months we lived as a family within the walls of Children's Hospital. Most of the time was spent in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit where Anthony was heavily sedated & supported by numerous machines which made holding him nearly impossible. The amazing doctors & nurses provided life-saving care to Anthony and gave hope to us. We are truly one of the lucky families who walked in the doors of Children's Hospital with our sick child and was eventually able to walk out the doors with him! For this we are truly thankful.
Please support our team, AWESOME ANTHONY! Anthony continues to receive care from Children's and will be a patient there for life. Children's has been there for us throughout all of Anthony's health struggles as they would be there for you if you needed them. Children's has been nationally ranked as one of the best pediatric hospitals for almost two decades. They care for more than 500,000 patients every year - many with health problems no other hospital in the world can handle. We have walked & fundraised for them for the past 13 years! Please support the research & treatment that they provide, and know that you are also supporting the families who need them most! As always, thank you for your continued support! XOXO TEAM AWESOME ANTHONY
