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 be proud of who you are.

    Not much fazes 6-year-old Leilani. But early in life, a diagnosis of Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) could have changed that. Connecticut Children’s provided the advanced treatment she needed – and kept her smiling the whole time.

    “My daughter is healthy and happy,” says Leilani’s mom, “because of the incredible care we got from Connecticut Children’s.”


    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 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.”
