Don’t miss the “funnest” lunch of the year!
Last year, Kids at Heart raised $105,000 — enough money to entirely refurbish one of our procedure rooms with kid-friendly colors and images, for a more positive hospital experience. Thanks to our generous donors, we have been able to purchase additional equipment to support the pain-free initiative that we told you about last year.
Over the past 10 years, we’ve also used Kids at Heart funds to purchase high-tech isolettes for at-risk babies in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, buy a specialized anesthesia machine for our tiniest cardiac patients, and help build an entire 24/7 Emergency & Trauma Center just for kids!
With your participation, we can make this year’s event even better. Come have lunch with us! Be a Kid at Heart!
This year, funds raised at the lunch will support our Pediatric Palliative Care programs. It’s a big word with a simple meaning: helping children with complex, potentially life-limiting conditions receive the very best care possible.
Our speaker, Dr. Maggie Hood, heads the Supportive Care Team at Providence and will share why palliative care is so important and how Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital is leading the way in developing customized programs to help these kids and their families. Dr. Maggie has recently relocated to Spokane from Seattle Children’s Hospital, and we’re excited to introduce her to our community!
