Raising our voices in Washington

Families, providers and staff who advocated on behalf of Children's Hospital

I am so proud of the families and providers who spent the day on Capitol Hill today. They were tireless advocates for children and children’s hospitals!

We met with 2 Congressmen, 3 Senators and many congressional staff. Along the way, we also met one kitten and one dog – both in Senators’ offices.

John, age 13,  impressed everyone with his ability to tell the story of his experience at Children’s Hospital Boston and did an excellent job explaining to Representative McGovern, Senator Brown and staff in Senator Kerry’s office just how important the hospital is to him.

Zebediah charmed Representative Welch and Senators Sanders and Leahy.

We are so lucky to have patients and families willing to travel far and wide to advocate for children.
