12 Days of Giving

If the walls of OSF HealthCare Children's Hospital of Illinois could talk, what would they say?

They would tell stories of four-year-old heroes and disease villains. They would start a slow clap for every staff member that, day after day, gives everything they have to make a difference. And above all else, they would spread the message that when WE all come together, the impossible is possible.

At times it will be hard to read, because childhood illness and disease is one of life's greatest injustices. But keep reading - because it is important that their voices are heard.
