This Holiday Season, Remember our Community's Kids
Lexie Hobart
Read a letter from Jennifer Hobart about the wonderful care her daughter Lexie received here.
The holidays are all about bringing people together. For many of us, the holidays are centered on showing loved ones we care and bringing joy to people we're closest with. 

This year, we invite you to think about coming together not just with family and friends, but as a community, to help Golisano Children's Hospital at the University of Rochester Medical Center provide the best possible care to the more than 74,000 children and families we treat every year. 

Your gift will have a lasting effect, well past the holiday season, in helping the children of today and for generations to come. Read some of our patient stories, to see the difference your gift can make, and please consider making a charitable donation this holiday season.

Join Us in Preventing and Treating Eating Disorders  
Makenna Moriarty talks about her strugglewith an eating disorder and how Golisano Children's Hospital helped.
About 5 percent of adolescent girls and young adult females are diagnosed with eating disorders. Many more are suffering silently. 
Hear the stories of Julie, Makenna and Margaret -- three local teens affected by eating disorders. We also invite you to watch a video with Dr. Richard Kreipe, professor of Adolescent Medicine at Golisano Children's Hospital, and the girls' families, who talk about the family-centered approach Golisano Children's Hospital takes when helping teens recover from eating disorders. To learn more about how your gift can help us enhance our program to better serve patients and their families, visit Eating Disorders section of our website. Thank you so much for considering making a gift.


On behalf of all the faculty and staff at Golisano Children's Hospital, we wish you and your loved ones all the best during the holiday season.
