Children's Specialized Hospital Foundation

The mission of Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation is to support the incredible programs and services of the hospital. When you make a donation, you give a gift that impacts thousands of children with special needs. Your donation makes it possible for a child to receive the specialized health care he or she needs, and learn to walk, talk, eat, and breathe independently – again, or for the first time. We encourage you to explore the ways you can get involved, and make a difference today!

Featured Patient

Leah Hansen

Spinal Cord Stroke

An outstanding third grade softball player known for her infectious smile and tenacity on the field, nine-year-old Leah was playing with her sister when she began to experience tingling in her fingers. Rushed to the emergency room, Leah remained in the hospital and was sedated for six days with no known prognosis.

Finally, there was a diagnosis: a spinal cord stroke. This is extremely rare. Only 2% of all strokes originate in the spinal cord and they are almost unheard of in young, healthy children.
