Why We Raise Money for Boston Children's Hospital
Bree is a beautiful and smart two and a half year old girl. She was only a few days old the first time we went to Boston Children’s Hospital and only a few weeks old the first, of many, times that she was admitted. After a scary first few months of life, the team at BCH helped us determine that she had a swallowing disorder than affected her ability to eat safely and it also affected her breathing.
The doctors, nurses, feeding team, and support team that make up the Aerodigestive Team at Boston Children's Hospital enabled us to care for our child and to ensure her medical needs were met while she continued to grow and develop. She’s hit all her major milestones on time and she’s been our little warrior.
At two and a half years old we still deal with frequent illnesses and the need for diet modification. Along with the BCH team, we look forward to her hopefully outgrowing this condition and going on to do big things in life.
