And groove to your own beat.

    Meet the one and only Youssef. When he was diagnosed with cancer at age 11, Connecticut Children’s was there with the expertise he needed – and, as the state’s only health system dedicated to kids, with care as unique as he is.

    “Connecticut Children’s knows how to make kids feel safe,” says Youssef. “They’re hand-picked for children.”


    And be the life of the party.

    Sofia was born with spina bifida, and cannot move or feel anything from the waist down. But with the help of Connecticut Children’s, she never lets that get in the way of fun. She loves to pop wheelies, is a celebrity at school, and seriously knows how to rock a bow.


    And discover what you love.

    To help kids like Selah learn healthy habits, Connecticut Children’s partners with community programs for nutrition, movement and much more.

    “I want my children to know what it means to be healthy. I want them to know what good choices are so that when they encounter different options, whether they are with me or not, they know what to choose,” says Selah’s mom.


    And always get back up.

    Sports are Jordan’s everything – but after a serious knee injury, she thought her competitive days were over. Then she came to Connecticut Children’s Division of Elite Sports Medicine.

    After a highly specialized surgery, Jordan returned to competition. She took up hurdling – and in her first season back, medaled in States.
