Our Patient Stories
Give a Gift and Catch the Love
As a parent, it’s a living nightmare. Having a very sick child, one whose life depends on getting the right treatment right away, creates fear and uncertainty far beyond the scope of life’s many challenges.
It’s for that child, that family, that moment, that we exist. To drive away the fear with hope. To dissolve uncertainty with trust. To restore a parent’s dreams of a healthy, happy child. Of a lifetime of love.
Won’t you help Catch The Love? 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.
