Brighten the Holidays for Our Patients

Miles Light Up Dr. Bear

Your generosity shines bright this December. Every donation lights up Dr. Bear at Children’s National Hospital and gives our patients and families a reason to believe.


Wherever you go, you can light up Dr. Bear right in front you when you donate using our augmented reality app. Don’t forget to share your Dr. Bear on social media and tag Children’s National on Instagram and Facebook to make an even bigger impact!


Your gift helps patients like:


Miles, 6


Miles loves drawing, watching football and playing soccer. As high risk for developing asthma, he joined our research study to stay healthy and help other kids in the future. He looks forward to opening presents, decorating the tree and relaxing symptom free over winter break.


Sofia, 11


Sofia has been in and out of the hospital since she was a baby for complex care. Still, she smiles even on her hardest days. She wants to be a nurse or doctor to help kids like herself. Over the holidays, Sofia enjoys music with her family and eats grapes for good luck in the new year.


Morgan, 4


Morgan loves watching Frozen, riding her bike and playing outside. She was born deaf, but cochlear implants and world-class care opened a world of possibilities. She heard her dads say  “I love you” right before her first Christmas.


Sumukh, 10


Sumukh, known as the mayor of our oncology floor, brings joy to everyone, through hosting Mario Kart leagues in the hospital to Bollywood dancing. After six months of chemotherapy, he went home in time to visit family in India this winter. 


Thank you for showing our patients and their families how much you care when you light up Dr. Bear.


P.S. An anonymous donor will match your gift up to $30,000 to DOUBLE your impact for kids like Miles, Sofia, Morgan and Sumukh! Give today.
