No child would choose to be in the hospital at Christmas time. Yet that’s where the sickest kids and their families often spend the holidays. At Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, we work hard to give them a few moments when illness takes a backseat to the Christmas spirit.
That isn’t always easy, since surgeries and treatments must go on. But there’s nothing more rewarding than the smiles we see when a Christmas elf, a sudden snowfall or a therapy dog shows up to bring cheer to a sick child. These kids’ spirits shine through and light up the room.
Support from people like you is what makes these miracles happen. Read about a few of our Christmas cheer ambassadors, and then take the next step—a generous donation to Children’s.
