Why We Raise Money for Boston Children's Hospital
Carter is 18 months old and has been a patient at Boston Children's Hospital since he was six weeks old. Early feeding and swallowing complications and chronic upper respiratory issues landed us in the hands of the Growth and Nutrition and Pulmonary Clinics.
After many tests, procedures, and hospitalizations, Carter was diagnosed with a rare congenital abnormality called a deep laryngeal groove. This causes him to aspirate thin liquids into his lungs. With current support of the ENT Clinic and his Feeding Therapist, Carter has continued to grow and develop, despite needing thickened liquids to safely swallow.
We are forever grateful to this hospital for helping us diagnose and care for both of our children. They have supported our family in ways we never could have imagined. The true love and dedication to the children in their care makes this hospital stand out among all others.
