We work closely with the social worker at PCH who retrieves Christmas Wish/Needs Lists from the Families whose children receive Dialysis. Last year we were able to sponsor all 13 of the children who received hemodialysis. This year the number of children who receive hemodialysis was less because either their kidney function improved or they received a kidney transplant.
It is such a blessing to be apart of these families lives. Knowing that we are helping them through a tough time is a gift in itself. Christmas can be a busy time of year. I love being able to give these families the gift of more time to be with their child with special needs, so they don't have to be stressed out with holiday madness.
All of this would not be possible if it weren't for the kind hearts of the donors who gave their precious time during a busy time of year. They purchased, wrapped and delivered gifts the week before Christmas at the Phoenix Children's Hospital. Thank you Sponsors for your kind gifts you gave to the PCH Families! Your time and effort is greatly valued and appreciated by these families! You have given the best gift of all a gift of HOPE! Thank you for Making a Difference in Their Lives!
We dropped off our Presents today and the mother was so grateful and hugged us 1000 times! It is such a blessing and honor to be able to do this for this family! Thank you for including us!
