Thank You From Phoenix Children’s Hospital
Dear Car Donation Foundation,
You love kids. We care for kids. It’s why everyone at Phoenix Children’s Hospital is thankful for people like you. Your support helps us giving hope, healing and the best healthcare to sick children and their families when they need us most.
Some think it would be difficult to work with sick children. However, what you really notice when you walk around the Hospital isn’t their illnesses.
It’s the hope. It’s the smiles.
Because even when they’re dealing with big problems such as cancer, heart disease or a sudden injury, kids still need to be kids. Children are not mini adults. Their developing psychosocial needs must be addressed by pediatric experts to achieve the very best outcomes into the future.
Thank you for Car Donation Foundation’s donation of $71.50. Your support equips our staff with cutting-edge technology, research, and programs to offer expert, family-centered care that saves lives. The kids we treat at Phoenix Children’s enjoy the best specialty care available in the Southwest while keeping up with schoolwork at 1 Darn Cool School; playing with therapy dogs; socializing at the Kids Zone, and enjoying visits from the pastoral care team and Child Life specialists.
It means everything to patients like nine-year-old Kameron. He’s battling cancer at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCBD). His mom reports that this passionate dog lover’s heart rate drops 10 points every time a therapy dogs visits. That reduces Kameron’s chances of blood clots, which brings relief to his parents. But Kameron just says the visits from the dogs make him feel, “happy.” And we think that’s priceless.
Thank you again for your generous support.
