Pediatric Intensive Care Unit
It means the world to a sick child and their family to receive kindness from strangers.
Sometimes it’s the ‘little things’ – like books, toys and the special treats. And sometimes its the ‘big things’, like medical technology.
There is a need in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) to purchase medical technology, like a CMAC Video Laryngoscopy. This is a life-saving machine that literally helps children breathe when they can’t. When there is no other way to get a little one breathing, it is absolutely essential that the nurses have this equipment to use.
This machine comes with a big price tag of course. Each machine costs $86,160, and they really need two – one for the Pediatric Intensive Care and one for Emergency.
Right now, there is a generous donor who will match every gift up to $100,000 made before the end of this year. So donate now and help our patients in the PICU!
Take a moment to read Wesley’s story about his experience in the PICU. He is truly a champion. So are his parents! And so are you! Because it is your dedication and generosity that lets us care for families like these.
