Welcome to our 2013 Annual Report "Inspired by Kids: 10 Remarkable Moments of 2013".
We are grateful that we have the opportunity to witness amazing and memorable moments every single day at St. Louis Children's Hospital. From the tiniest heart patient to the teenager who finishes his last round of chemo, the kids we care for inspire us with their tenacity and capacity for hope. We are continually thankful that our patients and their families bring us into their lives, into their personal moments of joy and sorrow.
For this year's Annual Report, we've decided to share 10 of those moments with you. As you scroll through, you'll see that there's additional information about each child's moment and story. We hope you'll want to learn more about the research, quality care and outstanding staff that make Children's such a special place. You can also download our 2013 Donor Impact Report to see the impact we had last year thanks to the generosity of donors in our community and beyond.
Our sincere thanks to our physicians and staff, donors, volunteers and supporters. You not only make these moments possible, but you make sure that we can live up to our mission every day, and do what's right for kids.
Joan Magruder, President, St. Louis Children's Hospital
