I personally do not have a story to tell about an experience I have had with the network as my children have thankfully been very healthy, but I know that there are so many kids and families of those kids who have stories to tell.
Here's a story of a child with an experience with the network who lives in PA:
Pennsylvania – Grayson
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
Brain Stem Tumor and Lawnmower Accident
Age 4 (as of 11/30/14)
When Grayson was only 2 years old, he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. Less than a year later, Grayson suffered from another devastating injury: he was in a lawnmower accident that resulted in the loss of four toes and partial amputation of his foot.
Praised for his optimistic attitude, Grayson doesn’t let these traumatic events get him down. He thinks of himself as Iron Man and, just like the comic book character, has turned his own challenges into an opportunity to fight back.
CMN Hospitals Funds in Action: 200 characters max (including spaces)
The child life department, which helped Grayson and his family cope with the emotional stress associated with his diagnosis and treatment, is supported by CMN Hospitals-raised funds.
