Why Make March Matter?

Because helping sick kids matters.

In March 2018, members of our community came together to support their favorite businesses and Make March Matter for the 230,000 kids cared for by Children’s National each year. Together, we raised more than $1 million for sick kids!

These funds will improve children’s health and ensure every child, from every background and walk of life, can receive exceptional care, regardless of insurance of ability to pay.

Meet Lily Grace, one of the many kids impacted your support.

“I just love kids. And I get to be a part of the process of helping kids get better, helping families transition to home life and helping them learn how to take care of these extremely complex kids, who a lot of people would be afraid to break, but these kids are actually the strongest people out there. They’re so strong. This job gives me perspective: It’s inspiring and incredible to see the strength of my patients and their families.”.Nurse Lilly Kawar has worked as an RN on the Heart and Kidney Unit for the past six years. Early in her nursing career, she lost a patient she had grown close to during a traumatic code, and for months afterwards questioned why she chose to work in nursing. After a lot of prayer, thought and reflection, Lilly decided to work in palliative care. “God told me that my job is to bridge the gap between life and death, between sickness and health, using traditional and integrative medicine.” Lilly participated in our PANDA Palliative Care Cubs program where she learned about resources, having difficult conversations with families, aromatherapy, Healing Touch and massage therapy. “As a nurse, I put everything into taking care of my patients - getting to know them and their families and anticipating their wants and needs, so that instead of them calling me at 3 a.m., I can be there at 2:45 with whatever they need.”.Thank you, Lilly, for the love, care and focus you put into making each day the best possible day for your patients, and for helping their families feel safe, comfortable and supported....#HeartMonth #PeopleofChildrens #hearthealth #hearthealthy #heart #kidney #cardiology #GROWUPSTRONGER #pediatrics #kids #kidshealth #palliativecare #PANDA
