Phoenix Children’s — which is open for care and has remained available to serve amid the COVID-19 pandemic — is a constant for the community, committed to hope and healing, and is the best healthcare for children and their families.
Here are the stories of five kids from this year’s Pheonix Children’s Hospital Give-A-Thon that are living examples of the quality care provided at PCH:
Every year at Give-A-Thon, a little one wants to take over for Jim Sharpe or John Gambadoro and be on the mic during the interview with their parents. After eight months of chemotherapy at Phoenix Children’s, Keaton was ready to make his radio debut.
Sammy was a normal teenaged boy that loved playing basketball. Even after almost a year of intense chemotherapy at Phoenix Children’s cancer clinic, he knew he was in excellent care and was able to persist through the pain.
A laundry list of health complications for Mayzie has kept her and her family in and out of Phoenix Children’s for six years. But thanks to the child-life team at PCH, Mayzie lives her best life possible despite all her challenges.
Sadie has a heart condition that requires a procedure in order to correct. And after Sadie’s parents Aaron and Sierra found out most kids don’t survive the procedure, they put their faith in the surgeons at Phoenix Children’s.
Quinn was born with only half of her heart and began treatment with a cardiologist at Phoenix Children’s. Both Quinn and her family then moved into the hospital for three months. With the excellent care they all received, Quinn’s mom knows her daughter would not have the life she has today without PCH.
