Light of Hope


MaKenna-09 loh crop button At SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center, our mission is that “Through our exceptional health care services, we reveal the healing presence of God”…

Did you have an example of exceptional care and compassion?

Did a caregiver make a memorable difference for you or your family?

If so, you can honor that person who revealed the healing presence of God, and served as a light of hope to your family by making a gift in their name. Our Light of Hope program is the perfect opportunity to give back to those who may have given so much to you. Philanthropy is a key factor in the improvements that help us sustain our level of excellence. Your gift not only supports our ability to provide exceptional patient services, programs and facilities, but it publicly recognizes the exceptional care received from one of our valued SSM Cardinal Glennon health care providers.LOH_Pin_Actual-WEB

When you make a donation in honor of your physician, nurse or other caregiver, they will receive a card informing them of your thoughtful gift and a lapel pin (shown right).

The Light of Hope program is sponsored by the Glennon Ambassadors, grateful families who appreciate the loving care they have received and want to give back by helping others. Your Light of Hope gift will also automatically make YOU a Glennon Ambassador! As a Glennon Ambassador, you will receive our bi-annual mailing of Glennon Magazine, updates on medical center programs and appeals, an invitation to nominate staff for our annual Ambassador’s Choice Awards, and an invitation to our annual Ambassador’s Choice Awards event on Wednesday, June 3, 2015.
