Stories of Generosity and Healing

Book icon

Every donation, large or small, has an impact on the lives of those who give and those who receive. We are always inspired by the stories that families share with us. Their gains, their losses, their hopes. Our donors come in all shapes and sizes, they are young and old, but they all have one thing in common ... generosity. Here are a few of the stories that demonstrate the power of that generosity.

Patient Ambassadors

The Cook Children's Patient Ambassador Program allows our patients to share the Promise of Cook Children's with the community. Each year, a group of patients are selected to represent Cook Children's and share their stories at events, fundraising opportunities and in Promise magazine. These patients and their families generously give their time to inspire the community and raise critical funds in support of other patients at Cook Children's.
