Daily Dose of Heart


These are challenging times. News is changing daily and many of the things we have taken for granted now hold a more meaningful place in our lives. However, while everything seems to change, one thing remains the same – our gratitude for our generous community.

While the coronavirus is top of mind for many, we are continually reminded of the dedication of our doctors, nurses and first responders, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to continue our mission. While you take care of your family, our doctors and nurses are on the frontline taking care of children, when families need us the most.

And, while we realize that these are serious times, we also know that a bit of good news can go a long way in brightening someone’s day. That’s why we’re delivering a series called “Daily Dose of Heart.” We’ll share moments of goods news from the hospital, to remind you that even in this time of social distancing, you are not alone.

Please connect with us on your favorite social media channels for a little dose of hope and happiness. And know that our entire Phoenix Children’s family is grateful for you and for your support, and stands ready to support you in the days ahead.

Last month, we were faced with an important problem here at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Several of the Radio Flyer wagons that we use to transport young patients around the Hospital had gone missing and needed to be replaced. These wagons provide invaluable comfort to little ones who are already dealing with a lot while in an unfamiliar environment.
