About

Help build the movement to support the premier children's hospital in America.

Child Life Services, a program at UCSF Children's Hospital in San Francisco, helps kids with life-threatening illness and their families reduce stress and experience a normal routine, despite a hospital stay that often lasts weeks or even months. To brighten the season, Child Life Specialists and Teachers provide many holiday activities. Brothers and sisters can "Skype" while opening gifts, role play "doctor" with medical equipment and toys, and watch dancers perform the Nutcracker, all while receiving the exceptional clinical care offered at UCSF Children's Hospital.

The New UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital will expand these support services, which fully embrace patients and their families/care givers and help them through their difficult experiences.

1. Everyday, the doctors and nurses at UCSF save lives.

2. Help to set a new standard of health care for children and their families.

3. Raise money and inspire people to support their work and support the new UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital.
