Glennon Sunday

Where Faith and Healing Unite

At SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital, faith and healing go hand in hand. From sprained ankles to major surgery, more than 200,000 children each year benefit from the commitment of hundreds of doctors, nurses and caregivers who are devoted to making sick children well.

When the hospital's doors opened in 1956, a promise was made to the community that any child in need of care would be welcomed, regardless of their family's ability to pay. That promise still holds true today.

This Glennon Sunday, please make a special donation to support Cardinal Glennon kids. Your generosity and commitment to the patients we serve makes a big impact.

When Sariah was four years old, she and her mother were involved in a devastating motor vehicle accident. In mere moments, their entire life changed. Sariah sustained two spinal cord injuries that would leave the aspiring ballerina and once-healthy child paralyzed from the shoulders down and unable to breathe on her own. Thankfully, the incredible team at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon performed surgery to stabilize Sariah’s condition and save her life.

Today, Sariah is seven years old and full of personality. She and her family have adjusted to their “new normal” and remain positive in light of Sariah’s complicated medical diagnosis and challenges.
