Children's National Hospital Foundation works with generous donors to advance the hospital’s mission. Gifts from individuals, corporations, foundations and community organizations fund world-class care and research for kids in the Washington, D.C. region and beyond.
Demier, born with sickle cell disease, received a cure — a stem cell transplant. “He’s had a second chance at life,” his mom says. “He does things he could never do before, playing football with his friends, running, going to the pool. Thanks to Children’s National Hospital, he’s a regular, active and happy kid.”
Seeing our patients go from scared to smiling after interacting with our Child Life team are the moments we live for. We strive to make each child’s day a little brighter and philanthropy makes that possible.
