"It’s not brain surgery! I’ll be back tomorrow," said brain tumor survivor and wrestling champion Shawn after he broke his arm, training for his next title.

The cutting-edge treatment Allison received at Seattle Children’s allowed her failing heart to fully rest and recover.

Welcome to the Children’s Story Project.

Here at Seattle Children’s, we love hearing the inspirational stories of people who have been touched by our organization.
