And know anything is possible.

    At a routine 20-week ultrasound visit, a problem was detected in baby Joseph’s heart. Connecticut Children’s was there to make sure his delivery went smoothly, and coordinate lifelong heart care.

    “Every time I look at Joseph,” says mom Marisol, “I remember what holding onto hope can do.”


    And overcome what feels impossible.

    “I made him promise I would dance again…and I did!” 

    Sabella worried surgery would end her dancing career. But thanks to the surgical expertise and reassurance of Connecticut Children’s doctors, she’s back on the dance floor and defying odds.


    And make the world your playground.

    From skateboarding to scootering, Finn used to be too sick for his favorite activities. Then Connecticut Children’s took over his care. We’re known worldwide for pioneering research and treatments in pediatric inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) – and getting kids like Finn back to the playground.

    “From the beginning,” says Finn’s mom, “they had a plan.”


    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.”
