Make March Matter is the inaugural year of an annual campaign launching in March 2016 to rally corporate partners, individual donors, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the public at large to bring focus to the health care needs of the children of Greater Los Angeles. The goal? To raise $1 million during the month of March each year to support programs and services at CHLA that build healthier futures for children.
Why should you Make March Matter? For kids like Ella.
In 2015 Ella was diagnosed with an aggressive, uncommon liver cancer called hepatoblastoma, which had spread to her lung. Initially she was treated at another area hospital. But that hospital didn’t specialize in kids, and it had little experience with Ella’s kind of cancer.
Ella’s family launched a nationwide search for the best care for her. Her mom, Amanda, and dad, Allister, soon realized that the best care was available a half-hour from their West Hollywood home—at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. It’s the kind of care made possible by the generosity of people like you.
Ella’s father says of the care she received, “Children’s Hospital was in a completely different league; we knew we were now getting the best care in the world. And everyone there respects the child. They would explain things to Ella in a way she could understand.”
Your support will help CHLA provide the very best care, conduct the most leading-edge research on children’s illnesses, and provide the personal touches and support that help children and families get through some of the toughest chapters in their lives. The dedicated doctors, nurses and staff at CHLA do all this—and so much more—thanks to people like you.
