The healing power of kindness is present in every gift.
It is our privilege to pass it on.

This month we have some great stories to share! Learn about two generous gifts in support of pediatric services as well as details about our upcoming virtual Run & Walk! We are grateful to all of our donors and sponsors that make it all possible.

Thank you,

New Virtual Reality Goggles Make a Difference for Pediatric Patients
Thanks to a generous gift from the James R. Ryan Family Foundation, virtual reality goggles are now available at Bronson Children's Hospital Pediatric Hematology & Oncology Clinic.

The virtual reality experience can decrease negative impacts of invasive care on children, improve patient and parent satisfaction and children’s quality of life during their visit.
Children's Foundation Provides Generous Grant!
The Children's Foundation has recently awarded a $50,000 grant to propel the work of Dr. Lia Gaggino, pediatrician, and Dr. Chetan Vyas, psychiatrist.

The doctors both recognized that there was more that could be done to provide resources for children struggling with mental health issues at Bronson.

This generous support allows Dr. Vyas to provide guidance and resources to Bronson pediatricians, and to utilize information gathered to continue researching new ways of treatment.
