Faces of Phoenix Children’s
Siblings Christopher and Emily were born with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a genetic disease that causes severe muscle weakness and can affect a child's ability to walk, eat, communicate and breathe. Phoenix Children's offers a groundbreaking gene therapy treatment, Zolgensma, that effectively changes the course of life for children with SMA, who would otherwise face an incurable, lifelong disability. Philanthropy makes lifesaving and life-changing breakthroughs possible and helps us transform lives.
Joey is a happy and thriving infant with achondroplasia, a rare genetic bone disorder that causes dwarfism. Thanks to early intervention and the expert care of his team at the Skeletal Health and Dysplasia Clinic and Child Life, Joey is progressing well. His family says Child Life was a “light during dark times.” Child Life had 110,000 patient and family interactions in 2022 through play, support and therapeutic arts. This family-centered program is largely supported by philanthropy.

George is a happy infant despite the challenges he's faced. At 3 months old, he was diagnosed with XIAP deficiency, a rare genetic condition primarily affecting boys.

She and her mother found healing through our music and art therapies, two of 170+ family-centered programs funded through philanthropy.

Through the generosity of our donors, our program provided more than 5,200 visits in 2022.
Nixen is an active teen who loves sports and his dog, Tashi. At the age of 12, Nixen found himself sidelined after being diagnosed with Chiari malformation, an abnormality in the back of the head where the brain and spinal cord meet.

At 1 year old, Nolan “Noly” was diagnosed with Wilms tumor, a cancerous mass that engulfed his entire abdomen. His mom, Brie, says Nolan's story is about every person at Phoenix Children's who was “a part of a thousand little miracles that meant life” for Nolan.

Yelitza is a happy toddler who overcame a tough beginning, having been diagnosed in utero with a severe congenital heart disease that caused a large hole in the tissue to separate the left and right sides of her heart. Yelitza's family credits her recovery to the lifesaving care she received at Phoenix Children’s. During her stays, music therapy, one of 170+ programs funded through donations, was integral to Yelitza's healing process. She loves musical toys, instruments and dancing, just like her family.
