Donations Help our Radio Flyer Hopes Soar
Being in a hospital is especially tough when you’re a kid. Here at Phoenix Children’s Hospital we try to do everything we can do not just to help our patients heal but to help them be kids too. One of the ways we do this is by using Radio Flyer Pathfinder Wagons to help get our patients around the hospital. It’s great for our littlest patients who are often too small for wheelchairs and it’s just plain fun for all the patients.
When we started our Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to replace some missing wagons, we had no idea how quickly and generously people would respond. Within 12 hours of starting the campaign we had met our goal of $1500! We are totally blown away by your support! Thank you so very much!
Our campaign is still going strong and we hope to continue to raise much needed funds throughout the remainder of the drive, which lasts until April 19. With your donations, we can afford more wagons to transport our fantastic patients around. Additional donations will go to our Hope Fund.
The Hope Fund is the most flexible and valuable way donors can support Phoenix Children’s Hospital. It allows us to direct the donations to where they’re needed most. That can include cutting edge research and charitable care for those patients in need. We love it when anyone donates to PCH and we’re especially grateful to those who contribute to the Hope Fund because it helps us get our patients the help they need, when they need it.
Again, we’d like to send an extra special thanks out to the friends of PCH who have already donated to the campaign. Your generosity allows us to give world-class care to our patients and for that we are truly grateful. For those who haven’t donated yet, please think about donating and together we can see how far above our original goal we can get. You’ll be helping PCH provide hope, healing and world-class healthcare to some very deserving children.
It is an image he can’t get out of his mind. “It was horrific. She just was kneeling on the ground and crying. That memory still breaks my heart. It was her baby floating in that pool, and there was nothing she could do.”
When Michael Kruer was in medical school, he knew he wanted to work with children. But his advisors cautioned him against specializing in neurology. They told him it was one of the most difficult fields to practice — and that he may never be able to look a patient in the eye and tell them he could take away what ails them. Dr. Kruer took this as a challenge.
