Light the Way

Aerodigestive Team at Rady Children's

Welcome to the Aerodigestive Team Page!
The kids at Rady Children’s are used to hearing “No” because their healing requires it, but in this pandemic environment they’re hearing it a little bit more. We are continuing our year-round work this holiday season to Tell Them Yes:

Yes, you can do hard things.
Yes, there are still things to celebrate.
Yes, you do deserve to be just a kid again.

To do this, we’ve created a Light the Way fundraising team to support the Aerodigestive Program at Rady Children's Hospital. Every dollar raised is another ‘Yes’ to ensuring children with complex airway, respiratory, and gastrointestinal tract disorders receive the very best care possible.

The Aerodigestive Program is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary team of specialists from Otolaryngology, Pulmonology, Gastroenterology, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy dedicated to caring for children with complex airway, respiratory and gastrointestinal tract disorders. Our goal is to continue with state of the art evaluation and treatment of these patients, to provide the best clinical care, and to advance public knowledge of these available resources. Please help us in making this dream possible by making a donation to this page. Your support will greatly benefit children who are in need of this complex care.

The donation process is fast, easy and secure, and you can be sure that it will benefit a great cause.

Will you be the one to Tell Them Yes?
