Our Patients

Very simply, our patients are our heroes. Temple Street cares for over 145,000 amazing little people every year. Every day we watch them fight for their lives and face challenges that we can't even imagine. Yet every day they smile up at us from their hospital beds. 

Your generosity has helped us to save lives, offer comfort to a child in their greatest time of need and  advance our research efforts. Together, we can give children the chance to live out their dreams. 

Here you can read some of their remarkable stories.
