As Christmas approaches, we ask that you remember the patients and families at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. During preparations for your holiday celebrations, it is important to stop and reflect on the joy and blessings in your own life, while also remembering those that are not so fortunate. While shopping for gifts and gathering with loved ones, please consider giving to our annual Tree of Hope appeal, which supports the healing care provided by our doctors, nurses and caregivers who bring our Mission to life each and every day:
“Through our exceptional health care services, we reveal the healing presence of God.”
SSM Health Cardinal Glennon is the only free-standing Catholic pediatric hospital in the country, touching the lives of more than 200,000 children each year from Missouri, Illinois and around the world. We care for all children, regardless of their family’s ability to pay.
Our work has a powerful impact not only on the children, but also their families in your community and beyond. Because no child is turned away due to their family’s inability to pay, we rely on the generous hearts of people like you. Please make a gift today to help us provide care for all children in need, especially those families who cannot afford to pay.
While no child wants to be in the hospital during the holidays, our patients wake up each day excited to receive Messages of Hope that uplift their spirits and remind them that they are being prayed for by generous people all over the globe. These inspirational, handwritten messages are scrolled in colorful thumb bands and displayed in our sparkling treasure chest underneath our Tree of Hope in the hospitals atrium.
Please join us by sharing a few words of encouragement or reminding a sick or injured child that they are loved. All it takes is a moment to write a special note, and make a gift. Your note could be just what the doctor ordered. If you would rather download the message of hope form and fill it out, click HERE and send it to us at:
