Healing Alycea

By Crystal Blanco

Tell us your story.

Alycea has been seen at Children's Hospital in Seattle off and on since she was a year old. She started having seizures at 6 months. The doctors and nurses here have taken their time and treated us well every time we have been here. The volunteers and family resource people have gone out of their way to be sure that we had everything we needed during our lengthy stays. My faith has been increased because of our experiences with the doctors here.

What does Children's mean to you, your child and your family?

To us Children's means that children from all walks of life have an opportunity to receive the best care available. The staff and volunteers respect their patients and the patient's parents as a part of the care team. I always stay with my daughter when she has to be in the hospital over night and they never fail to make sure that I am comfortable. I would like to say thank you to all who have been of service to us over the past 15 years.
