And get ready to thrive.

    Kiki was born in Nigeria with serious heart defects, but no access to the surgery she desperately needed. Her parents brought her all the way to Connecticut Children’s for the chance to thrive.

    Our Heart Center is known for outstanding surgical outcomes – and care like nowhere else. “The people at Connecticut Children’s are angels in human form,” says Kiki’s mom.


    And conquer any challenge.

    After a devastating leg injury, football star Zach was determined to turn his setback into a major comeback. It started with a call to Connecticut Children’s Elite Sports Medicine.

    “I said my son needed to be seen today,” says Zach’s mom. “They said, ‘Can you be here in 45 minutes?’”


    And be true to yourself.

    By the time Danny arrived at Connecticut Children’s Emergency Department, the cancer had already spread to his brain. It took five months, five brain surgeries, and a highly coordinated team to save him.

    “Connecticut Children’s is not just a hospital to us,” says Danny’s mom. “It’s a second home.”


    And brighten someone’s day.

    Claire was born six weeks early – but thanks to an innovative partnership, Connecticut Children’s NICU was ready and waiting. We provide award-winning care for newborns… and their parents, too.

    “Every step of the way,” says Claire’s mom, “they train you to be ready to take this tiny, tiny person home.”
