Thank you for supporting Child Life Services at UCSF Children's Hospital!

Dear New Friends of UCSF Children’s Hospital,


On behalf of UCSF Children’s Hospital, I thank you for your recent contribution in support of Child Life Services. Your generous response to Ron Conway’s UCSF Holiday Party Challenge vs. Sean Parker’s Birthday Wish helped raise more than $82,000, all of which will be used to assist our young patients and their families adjust to and understand hospitalization, illness or injury, and treatment.


Each year, more than 10,000 children are admitted to UCSF for care. It is our goal to enable these young patients to feel like themselves – and even thrive – while they are in an unfamiliar hospital environment. In addition to working closely with the medical team to provide the best possible care for each child and family, our child life specialists and teachers enrich our patients’ lives by exposing them to diverse experiences that foster interaction, curiosity, healing, and entertainment. Whether it is art, music, or other activities, we are hopeful that our young patients learn something new to take with them once they leave our facility. Your support helps make this happen.


We are so grateful to Ron for making Child Life Services the beneficiary of this wonderful holiday challenge. His vision and leadership continue to enhance UCSF in numerous ways.


Again, thank you for your gift. We deeply appreciate your partnership in improving healthcare for children.


With sincere gratitude,


Michael Towne, MA, CCLS

Manager, Child Life Services
