When In Need Grandmas Serve

Founded in 2015, WINGS is a group of 48 women—all grandmothers—who raise funds and awareness for Phoenix Children’s. Together, they’ve raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support projects such as a 3D cardiac imaging lab, an intensive care room in the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCBD) and a first-of-its-kind Medtronic neurosurgery robots. They’ve also sent 200 children battling cancer to Camp Rainbow and brought a full-time facility dog to the hospital.

“As grandmothers, so many of our families have personally benefitted from Phoenix Children’s services. The hospital touches us so directly.”
