Your generosity funded: assistance to families, distraction activities and education opportunities for our young patients, the family resource center, pediatric emergency room amenities, important research, and many other special programs and services that would not be available without your generosity. Every day, your gift provides some form of comfort and care to a child and their family, helping to make a difficult time more manageable.

BEARS FOR OUR SURGERY PATIENTS
Stowell/Supermodified Racing, now known as the Stowell Bear Team, raises money to build bears at Build-A-Bear and donates them to the Pediatric Surgery Center. Each bear come with a birth certificate, an x-ray and a scrub outfit that is custom made by one of the 8 seamstresses on the team. Children are given bears before they have surgery and they name the bear and it is written on it's birth certificate. Upon awakening, the staff talks to the child about the bear. Focusing on the bears helps the children be less afraid during their surgical experience.
