Patient and Family Support

Your support allows us to use the healing Power of Play to improve the patient experience and recovery outcomes. Giving provides our patients' families a home away from home and offers our patients enriching, healing therapies through art, music, pets and our full-time clown, Lotsy Dotsy.

You help us support families through services such as:

  • Conine Clubhouse, a hotel-like home away from home where patients’ families can stay at no cost to them
  • Personal Navigators who streamline appointments and find local resources for families
  • Child Life specialists who help patients and families understand what’s happening and cope through age-appropriate support and programs

Your donation also creates patient and family space for families to dine, relax, play and bond together.



When you give, you help us provide lifesaving resources, like advanced iMRI to help our surgeons ensure the best outcomes, child-friendly lower-dose radiation treatment and new wearables that provide continuous monitoring while letting our patients move and play.

Research & Education

Our research initiatives provide innovative clinical trials personalized to each child, as well as training future generations of doctors, nurses and staff on the latest breakthroughs in pediatric care. Our education mission also provides instruction from a full-time teacher with access to all the tools to keep patients current on schoolwork.

Our Patient Stories

Every dollar you donate empowers us to heal more children and save more lives. And what does that look like? Take a few moments to watch these stories of real patients, real families, whose lives have been transformed because people like you helped us Catch The Love.
