Can we bring hope to a family in their time of need?
Can we provide the care that will give her the healthiest future possible?
Can we find a cure for his disease and not just treat the symptoms?
Until we can say yes to every child and family, our work is far from done.
It Starts With Yes: The Campaign for Seattle Children’s is a bold initiative – $1 billion bold – to partner with our community and deliver on our shared vision to transform children’s health for generations to come.
As a mother and a teacher, I have always had a heart for kids. I said YES to Seattle Children's because I want to help make a difference in a child's life.
I said YES because my parents instilled in me at a young age that it's important to give back. So I am giving back to Seattle Children's to thank them for taking such good care of our daughter, Natalie.
I am saying YES because I have always grown up knowing to help others. I became a very young member of the guild when it just started. I love being a part of something and this was it at the time. I am so honored to be able to serve in this light, helping all children and families that are in need.
We said YES to Children’s Hospital as a thank you for saving our daughter's vision after a traumatic injury to one of her eyes.
I said YES because it's important to me that children can get medical care, regardless of their ability to pay. I've been extremely lucky that my kids and grand-kids (up to now) have not had major medical issues.
I said YES because:
1) all children deserve an equal chance and
healthcare shouldn’t be a factor, and
2) because I can!
I said YES because from a young age I was taught that giving back and being of service to others is true happiness. I am so honored to be a part this guild and to help make a difference in the lives of these children and their families.
I said YES because my mom and I started volunteering at the same time at Seattle Children’s and joined a guild together. Since I couldn’t attend their meetings during the day, a group of friends and I decided to form Eastside Friends for Children’s Guild in 2001. My son Burke was a patient at Seattle Children’s at 6 weeks of age, less than a year after we started the Guild. I’m thankful for the care he received at Seattle Children’s.
I said yes because our family has been blessed in the fact that we have always had healthcare to help pay for our family’s needs. As my children are growing and leaving our nest it was important for me to give back to those in need. Saying YES to Seattle Children’s was a no brainer for me!
I was raised to give more than you are given. I said YES, because I had the ability to do so. Knowing children are taken care of, regardless of their family's ability to pay, inspires me to do more.
I said YES because Seattle Children’s Hospital is an amazing place that helps so many kids. I know firsthand the amazing treatment and care they provide each child and given the opportunity that others can have that experience is important to me.
