Help make sure that all kids have access to critical patient care programs!
I am a member of the Comer Development Board, a group committed to raising awareness and money for UChicago Medicine's Comer Children's Hospital.
I am passionate about Comer Children's Hospital because it provides life-saving (and more routine) clinical care to children across Chicago, including children in our most under-served communities. We have the only Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center on the South Side of Chicago.
At the same time, Comer Children's attracts top medical talent and patients from across the globe due to its ground-breaking medical research and highly ranked specialists.
All money raised from the Bright Night Benefit: Crowd Fund for Comer Children's will fund critical patient care programs that would not be possible but for this funding. Examples include NuRoos provided to new mothers, Art Therapy for patients in the hospital for a long-term stay, and most poignantly, bereavement support for grieving families. None of these types programs are typically funded by private insurance or government-funded reimbursement.
I hope you agree that all children deserve these types of programs when faced with medical challenges, just like you would expect this type of care for your own family. Please join me in supporting this fundraiser. We have chosen a peer-to-peer campaign for 2022 as our extended hospital community is still not able to meet safely in a live-event fundraiser format.
