Welcome to Carley's Page
I've had the privilege of working at Children's for almost three and half years, and every single year, the strength, resilience, and courage of even our tiniest patients continues to amaze and humble me. The medical challenges and traumas that some people face - as children, no less - can give us immense perspective on just how fortunate many of us are. I've been seriously blessed not to have faced life-threatening illness myself, so for me, that perspective comes with a feeling of responsibility to lend a hand in any way I possibly can. With tragedy occuring all around us, it's so easy to feel like you can't do anything to stop it, or that you're not powerful enough to make a difference. But philanthropy CAN and DOES make a real difference, and I see it right before my eyes every day working for this hospital foundation! Giving in support of these kids and families is such an impactful way to steer our world towards better, brighter days ahead.
If you feel the same way, and if you want to give to an organization where philanthropy truly makes a difference in the lives of kiddos, teens, and whole families, then I thank you from the bottom of my heart for considering making a donation to the Walk for Children's. Every single dollar supports vital patient- and family-centered programs at our hospital that aren't covered by insurance, and innovative research paving the way towards life-saving advancements in pediatric medicine.
Your generosity supports...
- Child Life Programs
- Art and Music Therapy (these programs at Children's are truly AMAZING!)
- Supportive/Palliative Care (also an incredible program, uplifting families facing the most devastating realities)
- Pastoral Care
- Community Outreach for neighborhoods all throughout Pittsburgh
- Research and Innovation
- And so much more.
