Welcome to the Hana's Heart team fundraising page!
Hana, 2.5 years old, spent seven months last year at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. During the majority of that time, she was connected to the Berlin Heart, a ventricular assist device that helped her heart pump blood while she waited for a donor heart to become available for a needed heart transplant. Hana received her lifesaving gift of a donor heart on May 28th and was finally discharged from the hsopital on June 12th, just one week before the Summer Scamper last year. After two months at the Ronald McDonald House at Stanford, Hana was able to go home in August, after being away for nine months. In the past year, she still receives her follow up care at the hospital but is enjoying life immensely at home and out and about. It is because of the amazing medical staff and their research that Hana is alive and with us today. We are incredibly grateful to their dedication to saving lives.
We are fundraising to support Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford and the child health programs at Stanford University School of Medicine, because we want to help our community’s children and families get the lifesaving care they need.
Your support is crucial—it means that Packard Children’s, a not-for-profit hospital, can treat any child in the community who needs specialized care, regardless of their family’s financial means.
Every dollar you give will make a difference:
- $30 can provide a coping kit for a child facing a difficult procedure
- $60 can provide a week of vaccines or antibiotics for the Teen Health Van
- $110 can provide a child with a session of pain management services to supplement medication
- $525 can cover the cost of two comprehensive blood tests
Thank you for helping us reach our goal to support children’s health!
