Capital Campaign: KidsCare

PrintEmail
Share

The Edward Foundation has launched the KidsCare Campaign – a giant leap forward in critical care for kids at Edward. KidsCare will fund a complete renovation of pediatric services and bring the first in-hospital Ronald McDonald Family Room in Illinois. We must raise $1.5 million to accomplish this project.

Ronald McDonald House CharitiesThe KidsCare Campaign is about helping sick kids get better. It will fund a complete renovation of the newborn and pediatric intensive care units (NICU and PICU), and Special Procedure rooms, which will include diagnostic imaging, infant hearing, hematology/oncology and more.

For families of children in the NICU and PICU a place to recharge and reflect is critical. That's why this renovation will also include the first in-hospital Ronald McDonald Family Room in Illinois. Link to a rendering photo.

This wonderful addition will provide sleeping rooms, showers, relaxation areas, and a kitchen area for parents so that they can get the rest, respite, and nourishment they need in order to be near their child's bedside around the clock.

There will be a community room where parents can share with other families, and an educational resource area including internet access. A playroom for patients and siblings helps make it feel even more home-like.

The Edward Foundation welcomes your inquiries and your interests in supporting the Edward KidsCare Campaign. Click here for a brochure or learn about volunteer opportunites. Please consider making a tax-deductible gift today

VIDEO: KIDSCARE

Our donors have helped patients like Coleson Arends, who was diagnosed with leukemia just before his fourth birthday in 2008. Charles Rubin, MD, Coleson’s pediatric hematologist and oncologist at University of Chicago and member of Edward’s pediatric department, encouraged Coleson’s parents to take him to Edward – only ten minutes from home – for his monthly treatments. Read Coleson’s story now or watch this video (left).

Coleson is just one reason that the Edward Foundation has launched the KidsCare Campaign – a giant leap forward in critical care for kids at Edward.  KidsCare will fund a complete renovation of pediatric services and bring the first in-hospital Ronald McDonald Family Room in Illinois.
